Small is Beautiful (Zechariah 4:10 )

Small-Birds- (3) Greatness 2c1ae86c115aec8640ef5a9cc5b40274 th966AT3A3

Jesus cared about the individual as well as the masses. He taught large crowds if they appeared, but it never bothered Him that His audience grew smaller every day. Many left Him, John said (John 6:66), a fickle attrition that would have thrown most of us into high panic. Yet Jesus pressed on with those that Father gave Him.

We live in a culture where bigger is better, where size is the measure of success. It takes a strong person to resist that trend, especially if he or she is laboring in a small place.

But size is nothing; substance is everything. Where you’re pastoring a small church or leading a small Bible study or Sunday school class, serve them with all your heart. Pray, love, teach by word and example. Your little place is not a steppingstone to greatness. It is greatness. – David Roper

The Lord will give you help and strength

For work He bids you do;

To serve Him from a heart of love

Is all He asks of you. – Fasick

Little is much when God is in it.
