Little Things

Big. Little.

Which would you rather have?

Big? Bigger is always better, right? God, however, has an eye for small things.

David vs. Goliath

Baby Moses in his basket vs. the Nile River and Pharaoh’s army

Bethlehem vs. …well, name your city.

Bethlehem, tiny, overlooked, overshadowed by its big sister city, Jerusalem. Even the Magi, on their quest for Christ, head for Jerusalem, but no Messiah. King Herod, in an effort to “help” them, calls the priests together to find out where the Messiah is to be born:

“ In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written:

‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.’ “   Matthew 2:5,6, Micah 5:2 (NIV)

Are you little?

Little in size?

Strength?

Intellect?

Popularity?

God has plans for you and God’s plans are God-sized.

I Corinthians 1: 27, 28 says;

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world…”

God chose little Bethlehem to host His Son, Jesus, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

God chose you too.

The possibilities are endless.
