In my home, the most important light is not the large light in the middle of the living room. It’s the light on my phone that keeps me from stubbing my toe when I get up at night.
I’m an old chess player. Against a really good player, the key is not to capture the opponent’s queen. A good opponent won’t let that happen. You win by capturing a pawn, and then another. It’s the small wins that lead to victory.
The same is true with the body of Christ. There is no correlation between size and significance. God can use any of us. God will use any of us. Paul said it like this: “All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27).
Recovery Step: Bring God the little stuff. Yes, God wants it all. But start with a minute, not an hour. Read a verse, not a chapter. Say a kind word, not a sentence. God will use every gift, every moment, every word. There is no correlation between size and significance.
