For those of you who don’t know, I work at an awesome church and even though my official title is Student Pastor, my wife and I get the privilege of leading some amazing people on several different teams.
One particular team we lead every Sunday is our Production Team. This team handles the flow of the service and the different elements of our Sunday gatherings.
The other day we arrived at the high school our services are held at.
We unloaded all of our gear.
For us, there are numerous parts that must be in place for the service to run smooth, for the different elements to work and flow together.
Many are small things. Extension cords. Adapters. Batteries. Tape.
We had no mouse.
I don’t know if you have ever tried to run a presentation using the trackpad, but there’s just way too many chances for an error to occur.
For us it’s an essential.
Something so small is so important to the big picture.
So I headed home to get the mouse.
I grab it and throw it in the front seat of my car.
I get about a minute down the road and notice I forgot the mouse pad (the mouse was sitting on the mouse pad – I just for whatever reason pretended it wasn’t there).
So I headed back home to grab it.
It was worth it.
We needed it.
Success in life is founded upon attention to the small things rather than to the large things…
Booker T. Washington
Our life is no different. The small things should matter.
How often do we overlook the small things in our lives?
How often do we choose to overlook them on purpose only to give other things more value?
In reality we know deep down it is the small things that make life worth living.
What if today we experimented…
What if we slowed down and payed attention to the small things?
Is there a chance…
We would connect more with others?
Experience God’s grace more?
Show God’s grace more?
Then it’s worth it…
I truly believe if we pay attention to the small things we will begin to see what’s most important. It won’t be our to do list, but those around us.
What if we just slowed down…
Is there a chance we would see God’s finger print on the canvass of life?
Then it’s worth it…
The small things in life make life worth living.
The little things matter.
They always have.
They always will.
Luke 16:10 (NLT)
10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.
