“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).

There is, perhaps, no greater confirmation of a transformational faith than the action of doing the littlest of things for the littlest of people; those who are the most vulnerable; those counted as insignificant. The yet to be humbled ego still thinks of serving God in terms of the grandiose; praying constantly about doing something really big for the Kingdom of God. All the while, missing the most immediate opportunities that could have been answered with the most simple of gestures.
