Every once in a while in a Bible Study or other spiritual conversation setting, I hear people of faith wondering how their ordinary life makes much of a difference for God. They will point out that they’ve never gone on a mission trip or done anything really “above and beyond” in the name of faith.
But for every single person who has ever asked such a question, this is also absolutely true:
Sometimes it is the small kindnesses we do for each other – an encouraging word, a ride to a doctor’s appointment, being present for a friend, things that might seem quite ordinary – that make a big difference in the life of another. And really, every difference made, matters.
So here is a prayer for the “ordinary” acts of faith that all of us do:
Until tomorrow, dear friends, may you know that you make a difference, that is far from ordinary.
