Celebrate the Little Things
by Jason Romano
One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
Be faithful in the little things.
That’s a message I’ve come to share more and more lately. In sports, especially in baseball or softball, I see the little things making such a big difference in whether teams win or lose. Watching a player go first to third, watching them lay down the perfect sacrifice bunt, seeing them tag from second on a fly ball with nobody out. Those are things not found in the box score, but huge parts of whether teams can be successful or not.
In life, I think it is the same way. How are you with the little things in your life? Telling your kids you love them. Taking a look at the sunrise. Smelling clothes as they come out of the dryer. Appreciating that first 60 degree sunny day in the Spring. Not hitting a red light the entire ride to work. The ability to sit quietly and pray for someone.
We take SO MUCH for granted. And yet, life is really made up of a bunch of little things that come together and make us who we are.
This week, appreciate the little things. Stop and smell the roses and let it sink in. Be faithful in the smaller moments and the big ones.
Have a great week.
