It’s The Little Things

June 13, 2010

One of the members of our church serves as a missionary in Costa Rica full time. About a year ago she sold everything she owned and followed God’s calling to missions. She’s doing incredible things down there, and tonight she was speaking at church while she’s back in the States for a few weeks.

While she was speaking I felt prompted to help support her ministry in some way, and decided to offer her help with any technically-related needs she may have, since my talents are such. I talked to her after the service about this and she said that it was an answer to prayer.

The point of telling this is not “look at me I’m awesome.” I decided to try to serve in this way because I want to be available. God has not (so far) called me to become a full time missionary, but if He did, would I hear Him?

If I am not willing to do the little things, the easy acts of service that are within my comfort zone and the skills He has blessed me with, how can I expect Him to be able to ask me to do more?

Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.
Matthew 25:21

I encourage you to go find ways you can use the gifts and character qualities He has given you to serve in your church or community, and by doing so, show Him that you are willing to do more as you grow hungry for more of Him.
