Attempt Small Things for God

Ken Casillas address a much-needed issue:

But what do we have in mind when we speak of “great things”? Do we mean dramatic, attention-getting things, large numbers responding to our ministry, or achievements that will be remembered with our names attached to them decades or centuries after we die? It does not appear that the Lord has such grand plans for the majority of his people. Am I allowed to say this? . . . Most Christians will end up making a modest contribution to the work of God in the world. And that is not necessarily a sign of disobedience or a lack of surrender.
