“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’” Matthew 25:23
Do you ever feel like a pebble? An insignificant building block in the house of God? Do you wonder why God doesn’t give you a super-sized task as he did with Moses and Elijah, Abraham, David, Peter, and Paul?
Maybe it’s because you’ve been given something little to be faithful over, or at least, that’s the way your calling seems to you. The thing you know you’re responsible to God for seems small and insignificant.
But, how can you know the ultimate impact of God’s work through you? Who are you to tell the potter what he should be shaping you to do?
The Ripple Effect
“Drop a pebble in the water:
just a splash, and it is gone;
But there’s half-a-hundred ripples
circling on and on and on….”
“Drop a Pebble in the Water” by James W. Foley
“Upon my heart is written;
your gentle ways of teaching.
Like ripples on the pond
They are forever reaching….”
“Ripples on the Pond” by Sandra Crowther
If you are the pebble dropped into the water, you never know how far the ripples you cause will travel outward.
