We sat with the husband and wife for one hour. She has been battling cancer for several years, but continues to care for her family in difficult circumstances – with a smile. They were willing for us to come into their humble circumstances and minister Christ to them the best way we could. What we offered was not much, but they responded with appreciation to the love of Jesus.
As we came home, my heart was filled with joy, not because of what we had done, but because we served them in the name of Jesus. He reminds us that there is a reward for the small things we do in Jesus’ name. “And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward” (Matthew 10:42).
It is our human nature to want to make a big ‘splash’ so others will see and applaud us. Jesus is interested in the little things that reflect Him and no one else sees. A “cup of cold water” is not much to give someone, but size does not matter. What matters is the heart behind the service.
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GIVE THE SMALL, SIMPLE ACTS OF LOVE. That is JESUS!
