a very powerful article in my opinon. it’s nice to hear someone asking why it is that we feel that we need to do “big things for GOD.” aren’t small, and unnoticed things the most important? do our egos just push us to think that big things are the things that actually matter.
the author suggestion is that instead of imagining bigs things for GOD we should focus on the change within. i would agree with much of this. of course, some of my change is a change of becoming a person who is concerned about GOD’s justice. this means that in order to focus on the change within myself i must be simultaneously focused on the world around me.
some would say:
“i have to find the vision for what GOD want’s me to do for changing the world”
i think that’s a great sentiment. we just have to remember that most likely what GOD wants us to do is to stay faithful in the small things. then maybe HE’ll use us in the big things.
