Faithfulness in small things is a big thing.

Eugene Peterson defines faithfulness as long obedience in the same direction. Faithfulness is a virtue that can only be proven over a long period of time. Jesus did not promise us success but He did promise us His presence, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” {Matthew 28:20} Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. [Hebrews 10:23] God is faithful: hopefully, our goal is to be faithful also. Thomas Jefferson once said, “He does most in God’s great world who does his best in his own little world.”

  • Day one of VBS/VBX…pray for us…not a cliché, we need your prayers.
  • I went by to see Kenny last night after church, he was feeling just a little better. He goes to get fluids today. Hopefully that will give him a little more energy. It came a flood while I was there:  I hope Jimmy and Sandra got a rain. Here at the house, we got two big rains yesterday. Our garden is a mud hole.
  • They keep changing the weather forecast: now they are giving rain every day but temps not too bad. I think the showers are forecast for the evenings. We will take what the LORD gives us.
  • Dr. Adrian Rogers use to say, “There is a pain on every pew” and he was right. We have a lot of hurting people. All pain is not physical. A broken heart from a deep disappointment hurts, just in a different way. If you know one of these hurting people, consider an act of kindness today. It could make their day a little easier. Nothing deepens emotional pain like indifference. You can make a huge difference in someone’s life by just caring.
