At certain times in life we all feel insignificant and useless. Surrounded by people with greater talent than ours, we are tempted in our weak moments just to settle back and “let George do it.” We reason that what we have to offer won’t make much difference anyway. We forget that Jesus used five loaves and two small fish to feed a multitude. Like the young boy on the mountainside, each of us has something important to offer, and we are foolish to hold back because we discount the value of our contribution.
Whether our talent is great or small, that performance isn’t complete until we do our best with what we have. – Richard W. De Haan
In God’s eyes it is a great thing to do a little thing well.
