Little things…

I saw this beautiful picture from the internet and decided to keep it for myself. I like it because it challenges me, i am a person who like big things and therefore i tend to take for granted things i consider little. For example when i started having bible studies with a student at Wits University, i regarded that task as a little thing, and hence did not put much effort in terms of prayer and faith that God could work mightily.  Jesus once said, if one cannot be trusted with little how can they be trusted with much.  My psychology works like this, if someone gave me one cent or two cents to keep safeguard for them, i would not really take them serious as compared to if they gave me 1Mil dollars to keep. Jesus though he was sent by God, came from above, could raise the dead to life, saw and experienced God’s holiness, yet he came down to live among mankind he came to save mankind from their  fundamental problem of sin (rebellion against God)  through laying down his own life for sinners. Though sometimes he would preach before crowds yet we also find him expression great compassion to individuals, though he had limited time in his human body on earth yet he served each person one by one…if i was in his shoes i don’t think i would have had time for one person i would be anxious to only speak to crowds so i could reach more people with the good news, i would consider only reaching one person a little thing considering the limited time Jesus had…so indeed God works through little things…out of the twelve disciples Jesus chose the world today is growing in the knowledge of God.

like Batman said in the movie Dark Knight Returns, “A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.”
