I saw this little tree while I was running in our local arboretum this fall.
It made me stop and take a picture. It also made me think.
You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this tree is not very big. Not a whole lot taller than me.
It reminded me of the Charlie Brown Christmas special.
And, some other principles about little things.
This little tree, one of the smallest in the park, is doing its part, in a marvelous way.
Displaying God’s glory through the amazing colors of fall.
In fact, this was one of the prettiest trees I saw all season.
It made me look. It made me stop. It prompted this post.
And, I was reminded.
Sometimes it is the smallest that brings the greatest impact.
When God chooses, He can use the smallest, or seemingly insignificant, to bring Him the greatest glory.
Because, ultimately, there are no minor players in God’s economy. He works all things for good.
Don’t overlook the small things in life today.
The small gesture. The one kind word. The small start. The beginning stages. The often overlooked. The gentle whisper.
The small things may actually be the big things.
“Do not despise these small beginnings” (Zechariah 4:10)
