“And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward” (Matthew 10:42).
That one has rightly received God’s proclamation of salvation and the gift of eternal life is best seen in the littlest of things. In a culture like ours, that thinks bigger means better, the gospel of Christ affirms that size does indeed matter…and little things matter most of all. While the ego looks out to the horizon for the opportunity to do something BIG for God, it does so at the expense of all the little opportunities that rest at our feet each day. It’s the continual doing of little things for little people, those having no position and that are unable to respond in kind, that makes the greatest impact for the kingdom of God and the witness of our faith.
