“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.“ Mother Teresa
I love this Mother Teresa quote. It is a way of thinking that is so needed in our times. We have mega churches with services on TV, books galore to buy, and much more. A person could think they are insignificant compared to what they see on TV. When reading through the bible, we see amazing things God did through ordinary people such a miracles and healings.
We can tend to forget what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:
“But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away”.
The things we are impressed with are the things that will fade away. but there is something that will not fade away that Paul also wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:
” Love never fails”
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
Love is what will remain forever. Without love, any gifting we serve in is meaningless. God rewards the love we show him by helping his people as Hebrew 6 says:
“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them “
Showing God’s love has opened so many doors for me to be able to share with people from all over the world.
Yesterday after I finished my lesson with my friend from Mexico, we went to to Produce with a Purpose. They sell produce and part of the proceeds are donated to an organization/ministry that fights human sex trafficking- Love Justice.
The people selling the produce stand outside in the summer heat all day. They will be doing so all summer every day. They are not on TV and are not writing books to sell. They are doing small things with great love.
They have been doing so for years. They may not get any attention in the media, but I am certain God sees them and what they are doing.
If you live in my city of Lincoln, stop by their truck at 70th and Van Dorn for some produce and know that part of the money you spend will be used to rescue children and young women from human sex trafficking.

Remember God sees and will reward everything. No one is overlooked or insignificant in God’s kingdom.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
