Thought for the Week
How often do we get stuck on numbers. I know I do, thinking that unless I can sweep across the land like a good-deeds crop duster, eradicating all the world’s pain and suffering (or ignorance, or violence, or?), there is no point in beginning. Mother Teresa saw things differently. She helped one person. And then another, and then another. And by the end of her life that one person had become thousands helping hundreds of thousands in 140 countries. Yet in every situation it came down to this: one person helping another. Teresa never forgot that.
If our hearts are open, God will show us that person. And the next person. And the next person…
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.” ~Luke 12:6
