The scripture for today, April 10, is Zechariah 4:10 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
We tend admire big things ~ big buildings, big empires, big trees, big causes. Sometimes it is difficult to remember that those things started out small.
Have you been wanting to accomplish something big? All buildings started out with one board or one stone. All empires started out with one person. All big trees started out as one seed. All big causes started out with one dream.
Perhaps your desire in life started out small, but stayed small. Doesn’t mean it will always be small. It may become big years from now, or even in someone else’s lifetime. Don’t despise what you have now.
Or, if you have been putting off trying to do something big for a long time, make today the day of your beginning. Let no one despise your day of small things.
