“By No Means Least”
Sometimes we underestimate ourselves; sometimes we might be surprised at just what can come out of us.
God, help us to look for what you want to accomplish in and through us.
Cause us to see that, regardless of how insignificant we think we are, you might have plans to do something very significant through us.
Enable us also to see that, if something appears insignificant to the world and even to us, it is significant if you are behind it and in it.
May we want nothing more or less than to be useful in what you are up to in bringing your grace to bear on the world.
“They told him, ‘In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it has been written by the prophet: “And you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who is to shepherd my people Israel”’” (Matthew 2:5-6).
