It was recently suggested to me that holy is small, unnoticed, even undignified. I didn't want to like that but even as I read it, I realized the truth of those words. Like the original author, I wanted big actions, big change, big difference. Little did I know that God does big in the small.
Really though...I should have known that. My God suffered infinite punishment on the cross in finite time. That is really big in the really small. My God washed feet of His disciples, His creation. The Creator cares for the creation. My God says that He has begun a good work in me and will complete it. That is a lot of fixing to do in one small life in one short time span.
And so on some days, I will remember that. When my kids make big messes in our little house or I yearn to do something bigger than wipe boogers, I will remember that my little will be big. Because it is my job, my calling, my heavenly stores in the making.
But some days...it is hard to remember. Small is big.
