It’s the Little Things

By Linda Tancs

Do you look to God only for the “big” things in life—a life companion, a job, good health? What about all the little things? Do you pray for a good “hair day?” For patience in traffic? For a good parking spot at the mall? God isn’t only interested in the “big picture.” He cares about the million little things that comprise your daily life. God loves little things, like lilies (Matthew 6:28-29), birds (Matthew 6:26) and children (Matthew 19:14). He’s the Master over small matters as well as bigger ones.

God encourages us to rejoice over small things (Zechariah 4:10). Don’t despise them or act like they don’t matter to God. God presides over everything, and for that you should be thankful (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
