The price of these items doesn’t normally seem so overwhelming because we buy them in smaller quantities. Whenever you break something big into smaller pieces it becomes easier to handle.
Chances are, you have a big project in front of you right now. Maybe you’ve been procrastinating on it because it seems overwhelming. Just remember, you don’t have to swallow it by the gallon. Start with an ounce today. You might not win your whole community to Christ this year, but you can drop a tract in a phone booth on your way home from work today. Pounce on the ounce if you want to redeem the time.
