The reason most people can’t see the big picture. . .is because they’re worrying about little things.
Erma Bombeck, the author and humorist, once said:
“Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.”
Now don’t get me wrong, attention to the details is important … but worrying about them is not. In fact, it’s counter-productive and detrimental to the achievement of your goals.
Dwight L. Moody, the famed evangelist, once said:
“There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do the little things.”
Little things that are important should not to be ignored or improperly handled. . .lest they become big things.
As Christians. . .it’s important to discern what’s important so little things don’t wipe us out. . .emotionally, physically and spiritually.
The question becomes. . .is God concerned about the little things in our lives?
