The Little Things


I’ve been enjoying Dove chocolate for a little while now, but only recently was made aware of the little sayings that are hidden within each wrapper. Wowser McShnowser!

I realize that this is just a little thing, but I’m realizing more and more that it’s often the little things that make me aware of how God is dynamically involved in this world. Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about:

– Seeing someone’s attitude shift from being down-and-out to being able to smile and take the next step.

– The surprise of opening your front door to a friend you haven’t seen in a while who stopped by unannounced just to say, “Hi.”

– Overhearing your kids’ having a meaningful conversation with a friend, sibling, or grandparent, or watching them serve someone else from a distance.

Today, why not ask God to open your eyes a little wider to be able to see the little things with a new perspective. And who knows, perhaps God will surprise you someday with just the right words to encourage your heart when you unwrap your next Dove chocolate.
