Even a small church can do quite a few things and most of the things we are offering are not all that difficult or expensive. In the book, “Don't Sweat the Small Stuff,” the author advises us to not expect people to say “thank you.” People forget to show their appreciation, or they may not even think your action deserves acknowledgment. If we expect people to say “thank you” and they don't then we will be disappointed. But if we don't expect it and we do receive thanks it means a lot more. Sometimes something small, like a “thank you” card, a kind word, or a phone call, can mean a lot.

 

The Bible focuses on the great things Jesus did because the writer wanted to emphasize that Jesus was the Messiah and he revealed this by his great acts of power and authority. It doesn't speak very often about the little things Jesus did, but I imagine he did a lot of nice little things. I'm sure he thanked people for their hospitality. As a carpenter he probably fixed something for free occasionally. He may have just listened to people speak about their problems and not offered profound wisdom. (Sometimes just listening is a gift.)

 

There's a story about a pastor who moved in to a new church and started. One couple who lived right next to the church began to attend. When asked why they never came before. Their response was, “No one ever asked us.” I know some of you have asked friends and neighbors, but there are still plenty of people who have never heard from us. Perhaps just one word would be enough. A kind word, a listening ear, offering to say a prayer, these things matter.

 

Can you think of something, even one small thing, you can do everyday to bring someone some joy, comfort, or help with a problem? Is there a way to show even one person a little love today? Even little things matter.
