Author: MarshaAdded: Mar 15 2002Views/Reads: 2138/1234Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Little things DO mean a lot. Your small efforts can make a big difference in someone's life!


Ever wish you could change the world? You can you know! It doesn't take
great wealth or power. You don't need extraordinary talent. You have 
tremendous power right now to impact this world. Don't believe me? Read 
on . . . 

Remember the old song, "Little Things Mean a Lot?" Small kindnesses take
very little effort, but they can make someone's day. They are often 
appreciated more than we realize. If you'll just look around, you'll 
see discouraged people all around you. Don't overlook the opportunities 
you have to brighten someone's life. Not only will it be appreciated by 
the recipient and rewarded by God, but it will enrich your own life as 
well. Small acts have a profound impact on our world. 

I can hear you saying, "I'm just one person. I can't make a difference."
If you've ever been on the receiving end of a smile, a hug, or a phone 
call just when it's needed, you know that this way of thinking couldn't 
be more wrong! If you think your contribution is like a tiny drop of 
water in the huge ocean, consider Mother Theresa's thoughts on that. 
She said, "The ocean would be less without that one drop." 

There could be no mountains, if not for the tiny grains of sand of which
the mountains are made! Yes, little things do mean a lot. A short note 
of encouragement takes only a moment to write; but it delivers to 
someone's mailbox an important message of love and concern. Your 
optimism, encouragement, and empathy can make someone's journey through 
life a little easier. You may be exactly what someone is needing and is 
even praying for right now! Open your heart. Show you care. Share a 
little love. 

There's some discouraged brother 

Who's needing you today 

To smile or to talk with him 

Or kneel with him to pray. 


Some weary, burdened sister 

Has longed to hear you say, 

"I'll be your friend, I'll hold your hand. 

I'll help you on your way." 


The smallest act of kindness, 

A word of cheer you've spoken 

Can lift a heavy burden 

And heal a heart that's broken. 


Don't overlook a chance to help 

Discouraged folks to see 

That God's own Word is calling, 

"If you're weary, come to me." 


As God looks down from heaven 

And sees you share His love,
