We often scorn little things in our lives, the mundane, the seemingly worthless things we do, day in and day out. The cleaning of a kitchen or bathroom, the changing of a diaper on a baby, shopping for groceries. Yet no act is meaningless when it is done in love.
As we often need to “preach to ourselves”, I re-read it today and was reminded of Christ’s example. Jesus, in his own words, told us He is “gentle and humble in heart.” He got on his knees to wash the feet of the disciples, setting the ultimate example of what it is to follow him. A little thing, yet of the most profound importance.
I hope this re-post encourages all reading it today that the small and unimportant things we often do, whether for husband, or children, or co-workers, or even the pets in our care, is never a wasted act.
