Little Things

December 28, 2010

Hello Saints,

You just don’t know what a big difference the little things that you reach out and do for others make. We often take for granted how blessed we. The what we call small things we do for others are really are big things to them. It may be something as simple as picking someone up to take them to the store, running an errand for someone, visiting someone, calling someone, giving someone something you no longer need, helping someone financially, praying with someone, listening to someone, hugging someone, speaking up for someone, standing in the gap by fasting and praying for someone, or even giving up a cup of coffee, soda or tea to make a monthly contribution for someone or a good cause, all of these “Little Things” make a big impact in people’s lives. Our Daily Bread for the day (here is the link http://odb.org/) speaks about the little things. Read it or even go to the sight and listen to it and have a blessed day and remember the little things make all the difference. Have a blessed day!

Little Things

A medical school program in New York gives students who are training for geriatric medicine a unique opportunity. They experience life as nursing home residents for 10 days. They learn some of the struggles of maneuvering a wheelchair and being raised out of bed with a lift, as well as reaching the shower bar from a seated position. One student learned how little things counted for a lot—like lowering nameplates on doors so that patients can find their rooms more easily, or putting the TV remote in a reachable location.
Although the students still can’t fully relate, they will be better able to serve the elderly in their future work.
Sometimes God gives us the opportunity to use the lessons we’ve learned and the comfort He’s given us during difficult times to help others in special ways. Paul indicated this when he wrote: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble”
(2 Cor. 1:3-4).
Are you using the lessons you’ve learned in your trials to touch the lives of others? Remember—even little things can mean a lot.

The comfort God has given us
He wants us now to share
With others who are suffering
So they will sense His care. —Sper
God doesn’t comfort us to make us comfortable;
He comforts us to make us comforters.
