Good Works

The great hindrance in spiritual life is that we will look for big things to do. Jesus tool a towel…and began to wash the disciples’ feet – Oswald Chambers

I love this quote & passage because of what it represents. Kind of like my “starfish” poem post. That is, in order to make a difference you don’t have to change the whole world or move a gigantic mountain. You start with helping one person, doing one good thing for someone and then it grows. The adage of ‘the road of a hundred miles begins with the first step’ applies here. Service isn’t about you and isn’t about initially or possibly ever changing the world. Instead it’s about making a difference to that one person. Who knows what that one person will go forward and do or life they will touch because you cared like Jesus.
