“He that is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he that is unrighteous in a very little is unrighteous also in much” Luke 16:10 Print E-mail

Great or small are adjectives which have no place in God’s judgment of our service.  The smallest part of a machine is as needful as the largest for the working of a machine. … Great and small, weak and strong, are man’s adjectives, often wrongly applied and always foreign to the Divine criterion of work, which is not magnitude, but its motive and aim.  – DR. ALEXANDER MACLAREN.

It is but the littleness of man that sees no greatness in a trifle.

Count nothing little which in a small degree hinders your usefulness. – SPURGEON.

‘Tis little, tiny hindrances that keep the soul in drought,
‘Tis but the small unkindnesses that shut the glory out.
‘Tis little acts of slothfulness that keep us dull and dead:
Just staying too late talking, or lingering in bed.
‘Tis little small obediences that let God have His way,
Small acts of full submission that lighten all the day.
A life of deep humility, a tender touch and true,
These bring about God’s purpose, and He’s glorified in you.
