How do we build the kingdom of God? One step at a time. One small word of kindness; a little act of selflessness; a show of gratitude; an extension of mercy; a shoulder to lean on, or a supportive hug in times of despair, are all blocks in building the kingdom.
Although we are told not to ‘sweat the small stuff’, we cannot underestimate the goodness and power of the ‘little’ things. Jesus shows how the mustard seed and yeast cause real expansion (Lk. 13:18-21). Today, show a little love to please the Lord.
Lord Jesus, the ‘seed’ of Your word and the ‘yeast’ of Your sacrifice bring joy and life to us. May our ‘small’ sacrifice of love, mercy and peace serve to build Your kingdom. Amen.
