Gratefulness

“We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts. How can God entrust great things to one who will not thankfully receive from Him the little things?” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community)

To put it another way, how can you expect for God to entrust big tasks to you unless you are first faithful in the small tasks and minute details?

In whatever season of life you’re in, be all there. Be faithful and bloom where you’re planted. Do whatever is in front of you to your utmost ability. Stay obedient and trust God with the results.
