Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
We see the essential maintenance of daily life that will allow us to see the great things that are coming ahead for us. Had there been a “taking for granted” of the small things (all the preparation for the Temple that Zerubbabel would erect) there would never have been the great things after a time. Every great structure began with a simple thought. Then there was the simple beginnings of gathering the tools, creating the plans, preparing the land, creating relationships with others that would be needed to bring the dream to completion. God has a plan for you. You do not see the end goal but He does. The little things He brings into your life today is purposed to prepare you for the greater things down the road. Let us be alert to, and thankful for, the little things in our daily life that God is using to build us into the vessel He has designed us to become. Do not let the little things today go by without you noticing.
