I was reading my Bible this morning in Galatians 5 [in the message .. it's my preference for just sitting down and reading.] and I came across this: And please don't toss this off as insignificant. It only takes a minute amount of yeast, you know, to permeate an entire loaf of bread.
It made me think about the cliche "It's the little things." Yeast is a very little thing yet it is extremely powerful .. however, only when it is put into something. While it's in its packet, up above my stove, just sleeping, it's doing nothing. But add it to a flour mixture and that small ingredient makes most people drool and moan for warm bread!
This "bump" on the side of this hill is small, yet its placement allowed Guy to "soar" or get airborne for a minute. I guarantee that it made his trip down that much better, that much more likely that he'd go down again.
But it's just a bump. Left alone on the side of the hill it'll serve no purpose. It's only when it's a part of something else [snow day sledding party] that it is used to its full potential.
For no matter how significant you are, it is only because of what you are a part of. 1 Cor 12
So while you may not think you're significant according to this world's standards, I challenge you to be the yeast in something that is significant. Don't lay fallow, up above the stove. Find what it is that will cause you to affect someone else for God. Maybe someone needs you to be the bump that will make them soar toward Him.
Phill and the kids made this super-awesome fort this last weekend. It was a serious favorite for our neighborhood. It was made complete with two chairs a tunnel and a slide! Kyra is nudged inside and Guy and I were on the slide.
LOL .. the kids' faces here are so funny. Phill gave them an extra push.
And in Happy Birthday news, Kyra is going to be nine this Sunday! Time sure does seem to fly by.
