No Small Things in Gods World

Matthew 10:42  (NLT)

42 And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.”

We often think of “little” things as the simple things in life but God’s word tells us nothing could be further from the Truth. While it may seem simple to us it can be of great value to the person we are helping. The scripture tells us by providing simple things to those in need we will “ surely be rewarded” and we often think of a similar physical reward for our generosity. God’s plan may be a bit different with his larger view in the consideration of All things. If the value of our actions has an impact on someone’s life it may open a door for us to share bigger things with them like the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The simple actions we take can allow a conversation with someone that never would have trusted us for that discussion before. Our reward may be to share the gift of eternal life with them and our real reward just got doubled by adding a new friends name into God’s Book of Life and a new friend for eternity.
