Start Small

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much.

A climber can reach the top of the mountain preceded by the first footing. A runner being able to reach the finish line and becoming a champion also starts from a good start. Everything big starts with small things first. The large jackfruit tree that bears fruit and looks shady behind our house also comes from one small jackfruit seed. Think about it.

In the parable of the mustard seed, “It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown, it is larger than any other vegetable, even becoming a tree, so that the birds of the air come nesting on its branches.” Therefore never underestimate small things that seem simple. To be great we have to be willing to start small.

Small things start with what we have right now. What we have is the beginning of everything we will have in the future: the work or profession we live, the service entrusted to us, the talents, the possessions we have and so on. Do not let us be like a person who has one talent, who only keeps his talent in the ground and does not develop it.

Let us do faithfully whatever God gives us, so that in time, great things or unthinkable things, He will prepare for us. “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” 

Whatever is entrusted to us, let us do it faithfully, for this is the beginning of great things.
