Savvy's Say January 23, 2019

Hello friends!
So, this past Sunday we read about the wedding at Cana for our Scripture, and we talked about God caring about the little things. Later, I was thinking about how that idea could influence our relationship with others. If we are the body of Christ in the world, and if Jesus loves people in the little things, then so should we. Mother Theresa is quoted as saying, “There are no great acts. Only small acts done with great love.” Also, Monday was MLK day, which gives us an opportunity to think about Dr. King’s words on greatness: “Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” Maybe for the next few weeks, we can focus on showing God’s love to one another in our small, daily acts. Helping a friend, lending a hand here and there, offering a comforting word… we can love each other in the little things regardless of where we’ve come from, how educated we are, or how much money we have. We can all choose to be kind, choose to be patient where we might have been dismissive, choose to listen where we might have chosen our own busyness instead. Dr. King once stated, “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?” I think that if we can love each other in the little things, we’ll go a long way into living the gospel of Jesus.



Grace and peace,
