a small thing with great love

In his commentary on Luke 16. 1-13, Fred Craddock writes, “Life consists of a series of seemingly small opportunities. Most of us this week will not christen a ship, write a book, end a war, appoint a cabinet, dine with the queen, convert a nation, or be burned at the stake. More likely the week will present no more than a chance to give a cup of water, write a note, visit a nursing home, vote for a public official, teach a Sunday School class, share a meal, tell a child a story, go to choir practice, and feed the neighbor’s cat”.

I am reminded of the saying of Mother Teresa, "None of us can do anything great on our own, but we can do a small thing with great love".

Consider the possibility that the next step is no more than a simple and worthy objective: to do a small thing with great love.
