At certain times in life we may feel insignificant
and useless. Surrounded by people with greater
talent than ours, we are tempted in our weak
moments just to settle back and let somebody
else do the work. We reason that what we have
to offer won’t make much difference anyway.
We forget the truth suggested by our Lord’s
use of five loaves and two small fish to feed
a multitude (John 6:1-14).
Each of us has
something important to offer in His service.
Sir Michael Costa was conducting a rehearsal
in which the orchestra was joined by a great
chorus. About halfway through the session, with
trumpets blaring, drums rolling, and violins
singing their rich melody, the piccolo player
muttered to himself, “What good am I doing? I
might just as well not be playing. Nobody can
hear me anyway.” So he kept the instrument to
his mouth, but he made no sound. Within
moments, the conductor cried, “Stop! Stop!
Where’s the piccolo?” It was missed by the
ear of the most important person of all.
It’s much the same way with the use of our
abilities for the Lord. Whether our talent is
great or small, the performance isn’t complete
until we do our best with what we have.
The Master needs what you have to offer
No matter if you think it’s small
His work on earth is done through His children
So give Him your best, give your all. –Hess
In God’s eyes it is a great thing
To do a little thing well.
