I can see her now, sitting across the table from me sipping on her hot tea and nibbling on her toast. Her bible is spread out in front of her and words of wisdom pour from her lips. “remember, it’s not one big thing you do in life that makes a difference. It’s a bunch of little things added up.” My grandma is one of the wisest and Godly people I know. Her encouragement and guidance has helped me get to where I am today. That statement she made years ago has been one that is imbedded in my heart and it’s truth will remain forever. With the business life brings it’s so easy to forget those around you who may be in need of love and care. In a world that screams luxury we can often times forget that this world isn’t ours and life doesn’t revolve around us.
Even Christ didn’t come to be served but to serve others and give his life as a ransom for many.
My grandma is such a good example of that bible verse. Throughout the years my grandmother has excelled Christlike servanthood. She was my example of how to live when I didn’t know what to do. When I moved out on my own my grandmother was the one that helped me financially when needed. She was always my shoulder to cry on and she always provided the love and care I needed. I always feel loved even now and I can stand next to her and proudly say that I am a spitting image of her. My grandma didn’t touch the world in just one way and she didn’t even do it in one day. It was a bunch of little things that added up which in turn spread God’s love like a wildfire. How exactly did her love spread like that? Well it spread because she gave that love to me and many others and those people continued spreading it to even more people.
Never underestimate the power of Gods love. It goes on and on just like the energizer bunny. It never fades. It never stops and even in the darkest moment’s he uses people to show his love in hopes to shine a light. As you go through this day I encourage you to remember the wise words of my grandmother. Shine God’s love in a little way today. Smile at the person next to you. Open the door for someone with their hands full. Walk an older woman across the street. You may not know it but those small things may be just what they need at that moment and they do make a difference. Your actions can change the world!
