Little Things Mean a Lot.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father” James 1:17
Remember that “golden oldie” song, “Little Things Mean a Lot”? Every once in a while that tune pops up into my mind even though no one has “thrown me a kiss from across the room” recently!
Think of “little things” in life that have meant a lot to you recently -perhaps a phone call, an e-mail, a cup of Starbucks, the sound of rain, a laughing child, a cute comic strip, a game of cards. It is easy to simply accept these experiences with little thought and miss the connection between them and our gracious and living Lord who continues to gift us with both big things and little things each day.
Take time today to be aware of those “little things”. Thank the Lord for them, for it is not only that they cheer and pep us up, but they remind us again and again of the Giver of all of these gifts! His love for us in Christ is so big, even through these “little things”.
Lord, thanks for the little things that come to me up today. And help me to share these little things with others, in your name, Amen.
Do: Make a list of little things in your life that really are big things to you!
