The world’s largest aircraft carrier is 1,092 feet long with a crew of almost 6,000 personnel. The world’s highest bridge is in Colorado at 1,053 feet. The world’s largest cake weighed 128,000 pounds including 16,000 pounds of icing.
We all like big things. And there’s nothing wrong with that, as long as we don’t let our focus on big things rob us of time for the little things God has called us to do today. Jesus, who was the Son of God, commanded his followers to seek out the lowest positions and wait for Him to open doors for bigger things in His timing.
Many Christians today equate bigness with God’s blessing. And while sometimes that is the case, it certainly isn’t always. God doesn’t call everyone to bigness but he does call everyone to faithfulness, not just to the big wonderful work you’ll do someday, but to the lowly task He’s called you to today.
