We Are Never Too Big To Do Something Small

Do you think you are “above”  doing certain things?  You aren’t but, that doesn’t stop us from feeling that way at times.

Some time back, I heard John Maxwell tell a story about the time he was Pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, CA.  His church was growing and they were running out of space.  So, he gave up his study to be used for something else.

During this time, a writer for a magazine wanted to come and interview him.  But his administrative staff realized, John didn’t have an office.  So, where would the interview be held?

John found a  janitor’s closet and asked the custodial staff to clean it out and that’s where the interview was held.  His staff didn’t like the idea.  They were somewhat embarrassed that their Pastor was doing an interview in a janitor’s closet!

But John used that to illustrate a point.  We are never too big to do something small.  Our significance is not in our title, the location and size of our office or our resume.  Our significance is found in serving Christ.

Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came not to serve, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 1 0:45).

If you eat in a Chik-fil-A, when you begin to place your order you will hear, “How may I serve you?”  We should ask the Lord to show us  how we can serve others today.  We are never too big to do something small.
