The Little Things…
Hello again and welcome back to my online oasis, isn’t it a lovely day for another inspiration blog post my friends, foes, brothers, sisters?
Well, let’s begin then, shall we? It’s the little things that count, or so it is often said, is it not? When you take the time to think about it, the littlest moments in life really are the ones that count the most, being that we are all most prone to taking deep consideration at a baby’s first word, which to a lot of people might mean nothing and really compared to other events in a child’s life that occur, a first word really isn’t one of the biggest accomplishments.
Yet we as humans tend to take such note of the littlest of things, such as burping a baby even, isn’t that funny? It’s true though, we humans tend to overreact at the smallest things, so I would say that it truly is the littlest things that count the most, which can some times be good and other times be rather bad.
Biblically however, taking note of the smaller things really make all the difference, because we can learn from scripture that if God can trust us in the little things, that is when we will be blessed with much greater things. (By the way I really hate using the word ‘things’ but I don’t know what else to say.)
- He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. – Luke 16:10 K.J.V.
I know that I might have mentioned this many times before, but this verse is one that my grandma has quoted to me all throughout my life, because when we didn’t have much sometimes I could get a bit ungrateful, which can happen to a lot of us especially when living in such a society that demands MORE and MORE, right?
But I was taught to cherish what it is that I have, and I am very easily able to be content wherever I am, I know that I may not have much at times, however, at the same time I am grateful that God has given me and my family ENOUGH, and for some people enough may not be all that they THINK they need, but for me it is.
Of course I want things from time to time, but I know that my Lord and Savior KNOWS that my wants and NEEDS are few and far in between.
Do you ever have those little encounters while out at public when at the doctors or buying groceries at the register, when someone all of a sudden walks up to you saying something funny or something you agree with? Then all of a sudden you are in a full on conversation with this person that you haven’t ever met in your life.
I have, it’s funny how many little events I can recall, I have even put some of them on my blog before, because I can’t help but wonder about the little things when I’m riding around town while we are doing our shopping or going to church, or wherever we might be going.
I can’t help but wonder where the rest of those people we pass on our way might be going, what kind of events they might be going through in their life, it’s funny because many times when we pass someone on the highway I will look into their vehicle and If I sense for a little bit that something is wrong in that persons life, I begin feeling a strong urge to pray for them, and I do.
Is that strange?
What it all boils down to is to not take life for granted, think of your little dog, think of what excites him, it’s the smallest gifts of life isn’t it? Like getting to go out for a walk, getting fed by you, getting that pat on the head issuing him a ‘good boy’ all of that may seem small but to him, that is his whole life, dogs somehow realize that they aren’t going to be on this earth for a very long time.
So they somehow make a great effort in taking note and enjoying the little things that life has to offer, let’s be like the dogs, let’s be a little more grateful for the smallest of things in life, because what we may see as ‘little’ or ‘worthless’ someone else might see as beautiful and amazing, because they might not have been blessed with all that we have been blessed with, and we must never forget that we are not the only people on this earth.
We must never forget, the little things.
Until next time my long far away friends, take care, sleep with your gun held tight and don’t let the government bite.
