DEVOTION: Little is Much

DEVOTION: Little is Much
Team USA has over 500 athletes at the 2012 Olympics. Several countries of the world brought 5 or less athletes to compete in the games. Billions of dollars have been spent on preparation for this world event. We are able to see something of every aspect of "the games" even without a ticket.
    One game... one point can touch every corner of the world. History is being made as we trace the footsteps of one man... one woman.

  "When the 5,000 people had eaten their fill, the Master said to his disciples, "Gather the leftovers so nothing is wasted." They went to work and filled twelve large baskets with leftovers from the five barley loaves."

  O God I forget the importance that even one word can make... one act... one deed... one hope.  The ramifications....the consequences... the results... the effects can live on and continue to mold and change... fill and inspire long past the event.  Help me be to be willing to offer ... even a cup of cold water... a welcoming smile... a helping hand... a loaf of bread... a warm coat... a pair of shoes... a chair... a table... a job... a piece of land... a hoe... a set of tools... an empty house... a book... a pencil or pen.  Help me remember that from the most to the least... there is no difference in possibility.  Empower us in our commitment so that no matter what we choose to do each day we prepare our heart, mind, body and spirit to be called out and ready even in the simplest task of our daily responsibilities.  Watching the wonder of human capability... remind me that in your hands... little is much.
