Oftentimes in life it is so hard appreciate and be thankful for little things we have, get or do in this me first, I want it all now time and culture because small things and humble beginnings don’t get the eyes and ears of the mass but bible teaches us Not to despise any of our baby steps we decide to take in life toward Jesus, Bible says in:
Zachariah 4 verse 10 Don’t despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand. Zechariah 4:10, NLT
So don’t despise the humble beginnings in life but whatever is small and little bring it before Jesus. It’s interesting to see how God never despises the little things.
When the boy brought his five loaves and two fish, the disciple Andrew scoffed, condescendingly patted the boy on his head and said to Jesus, “What are they among so many?” In direct contrast, God did not despise the boy’s small lunch.
‘Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten. ‘ John 6:8-13 NIV
So don’t despise the little things that you have right now. See them as your very own “five loaves and two fish” even when people around you mock and belittle you. Learn to disregard such people and lay your little before Jesus. While you and I have no power to multiply, Jesus certainly does!
So my dear friends, whatever you are building right now in your career, ministry or business, let’s not despise the day of small, humble and seemingly insignificant beginnings. In all we do lets involve Jesus and let’s allow His provision of favor, wisdom and power to multiply and grow the little things in our hands.
