Think Small

25 Jun

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”  ~ Desmond Tutu

Too many people focus on the big picture.  They think that, unless something is done on a grand scale, it should not be done at all.  In the process, what happens?  You’ve got it:  nothing gets done.

Don’t think big today.  Think small.  Think about all the small acts of kindness that you can accomplish today and then carry them out.  It doesn’t have to be anything big enough to make the 10:00 p.m. news.  It just has to be something that makes it into the heart, mind, and soul of another individual.

That’s the way most major change gets accomplished: one little step at a time.  That’s the way that we can change the world: one little bit of good at a time.  Do not allow those you know who do grand and glorious things to hinder you from doing something for others.  God doesn’t look at scale.  He looks at intent and He is quite pleased with every little bit of good that is accomplished for the benefit of others.

So, hop to it and make God incredibly happy today.  Making God happy by doing little bits of good, in the grander scheme of things, is big!

FAITH ACTION:  Don’t worry about the big stuff.  Do as many little bits of good as you can today.
