Do I want to do some great thing for GOD? Perhaps I feel a touch of envy for missionaries or pastors or great leaders and speakers. Perhaps I feel that because what I am doing does not seem as significant, I am not as pleasing to GOD. But service to God cannot be evaluated by comparison to other people. The important thing to God is not how I measure up with others, but how I am doing with what he has given me.
God does not see things as we do. He knows what our capabilities are and how he can best use us. If he asks me to be a caring servant to someone and I obey, that is just the same to him as if he had called me to have a worldwide ministry and I obeyed. I must not wait for some great opportunity in the future to serve him. Whatever he has given me now I must be willing to use, however insignificant it may appear.
The devil loves lethargic dreamers who say, "I could give very little right now. I'll just wait till I am prepared to do something significant."
The Master will never give us "big" things to do if we have been unwilling to do the "small" things.
