THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

By George L. Ward Jr. In the Old Testament a verse reads, “A day of little things, no doubt, but who would dare despise it?” Jesus, being a follower of the Old Testament, did not despise the little things. When he set out to change the world, he chose only a dozen people to work with–not a cast of thousands. He packed value into every minute, every glance, every question, every encounter because he knew that out of little things come big ones. I once worked with a boss who didn’t want me to spend so much time with clients. “Go after the big clients, George,” he said. Leave the peanuts to the others.” At the end of the year, when the numbers were totaled, the combinations of all of my small sales were double the $ amount of his few “big ones”. Dinosaurs became extinct–rabbits still abound.
