Morning Thought: Rejoice in the day of small things. The Kingdom always begins with a seed. Jesus himself came as a baby. It’s only as the seed enters into the dirt and darkness that the process of new life begins. The hidenness causes the brokenness that propels the roots to spring out. This is God’s design, his way. Embrace his way. The world has a multitude of quick shortcuts, leaving you rootless and fruitless. But the Father’s way brings real fruit. “For who has despised the day of small things?” (Zechariah 4:10a, NASB).
