898th -- Every Little Thing


In life, we each want to do great things and make our life meaningful so 
that it is a benefit to ourselves as well as to the world. What we must 
understand is that by being caring and compassionate towards others, we are
already making a difference with our life that can never be erased. When
we help do for others what they can't do for themselves, we are shining a
light that can never be extinguished. The Bible declares in James 1:27 
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit 
the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself 
unspotted from the world.” This verse simply says to be there for others
in their time of need and do for them what you wish someone would do for 
you if you were in that situation. (Luke 6:31) (Matthew 5:16)

Be encouraged and know that you can make a difference. You can do a kind
deed, share a kind word, send an encouraging message and simply be a 
blessing when you see the opportunity. It doesn't have to be a big thing
because some of the greatest blessings happen spontaneously and with 
little thought before hand. Join the blessing club and do your part to 
make a difference that will never be forgotten. (Galatians 6:10)

I hope this message encourages and inspires your heart to be one who 
blesses others not because you want something in return, but because you 
want your life to make an impact.


I have always wanted to do something big in my life. Since I was a boy 
watching those old television cowboys rescuing people on a runaway stage 
or those heroic TV firemen saving a baby from a burning building, I wanted
to do something like that. Well, almost 44 years have gone by now and I 
still haven’t done anything even close to that.

Still, today when I took my dogs out for their morning walk I made sure to
give each of them a pet on the head first. Today before breakfast was over
I made sure that I gave each of my children a hug and told each one of 
them that I loved them. Today instead of rushing into the grocery store I
pulled the door open wide and held it so an elderly man with a walker could
go before me. Today before I pulled out on the road I motioned another 
driver on a side street to go on ahead of me. Today when I had to stop 
driving for road work I didn’t complain and instead gave a friendly wave 
to the highway worker holding the stop sign.

Today instead of walking past the people in my office I stopped to exchange
a few kind words. Today on the way back to my home I stopped to give a 
hitchhiker a ride back to his. Today when I answered e-mails and wrote 
letters I tried to pass on a little encouragement and inspiration in each 
one of them. Today when I took a break in the evening to read a book I made
room on my lap for a cat wanting its head scratched. Today as I moved from 
task to task I paused to talk to God, to thank Him for my life, to tell Him
again how much I loved Him, and to ask Him to fill me with His love always.
Today I did my best to live well and to love deeply.

You see, I learned a while ago that God isn’t waiting for us to do 
something big in our lives. God instead is watching every little thing we
do. It is the little things that are important. It is the little things 
that make up our lives. And it is in the little things that we can best 
share our love.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Colossians 3:23-25 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord,
and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of
the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong 
shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of

Luke 6:35-36 Jesus declares
“But love ye your enemies, and do good, and 
lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye 
shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful 
and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”

Galatians 6:2-4 “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of
Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he
deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he
have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”

2 Timothy 4:6-8 “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my 
departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my 
course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown
of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at 
that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
