Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the little things you’re doing right now matter. You’re tired of getting up early to lead a Sunday School class barely anyone attends. You’re serving in a ministry that isn’t growing nearly as fast as you’d like. You’re being kind to someone at work who is almost impossible to be kind to.
And doing these invisible, often thankless acts wears thin sometimes. We feel like they’re pointless and lose sight of how they might all be connected to a bigger story, that we’re a paragraph in a tale that stretches across time, a sentence in a book bigger than we can possibly fathom.
But sometimes, if we’re fortunate, we get to see something that reminds us of the connections, how lives can intersect in small ways to make a big impact on the world.
This video did that for me. I saw it at an event I spoke at last summer and will be returning to next summer called “BigStuf Camps.” I thought it was brilliant and hope it reminds you of the power that a tiny connection can have in the hands of our massive God.
