Little And Ordinary Become Great
Luke 19:17: And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
What multiplies the little things in our lives and makes them great is giving them to The Lord. A woman asked Dr. J. Vernon McGee if she should pray about the little things in her life. His response: Do you know of anything in your life that is big to God?
A little lad gave his 5 loaves and 2 fishes to Jesus. Jesus fed four thousand with them. (John 6:37 and following.)
John 2:11a: This beginning of miracles did Jesus . . . He changed water into wine.
W. Hay Aitken:
It was out of the common thing that the precious thing was brought; and it is out of the common things of daily life, presented obediently to Jesus and laid at His feet, that He brings His own glorious gifts, so that our whole lives become one great sacrament.
1 Chronicles 4:23: These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work.
Frances Ridley Havergal:
Anywhere and everywhere we may dwell with the King for his work. We may be in a very unlikely or unfavorable place for this; it may be in a little country life, with little enough to be seen of the goings of the King around us; it may be among hedges of all sorts, hindrances in all directions; it may be, furthermore, with our hands full of all manner of pottery for our daily task. No matter! The King who placed us there will come and dwell there with us; the hedges are all right, or He would soon do away with them; and it does not follow that what seems to hinder our way may not be for its very protection; and as for the pottery, why, this is just exactly what He has seen fit to put into our hands, and therefore it is, for the present, His Work.
