Big and Small


think-big-think-smallBy Brian Mateer

We like doing big things.  We like planning big things.  We like being a part of big things.  We like big numbers, big crowds and big results.

Most things start small.  A small risk, adjustment or conversation.  A single person, idea or prayer.

I love how the scriptures speak of big and small things used by God for God’s purposes.

Great crowds coming to hear Jesus, thousands of converts at Pentecost, Jesus feeding 5000.

Tiny mustard seeds, little David versus Goliath, and a small boy with a small lunch of fish and bread.

30 short hours. Small steps by youth leaders, participants and donors. Thousands of student participants, thousands of perspectives changed and thousands of lives saved.

Think big, think small.

Do the Famine.
