Is It A Small Thing

Moses: “Is it a small thing to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself . . .” Numbers 16:9

Sons of Eliab: “Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, that you should keep acting like a prince over us?” Numbers 16:13

I read the above exchange and my hand flies to my mouth. Oh no, they didn’t really say that to Moses! But, oh yes, they did.

Oh Lord, teach me how small my circumstances are and how huge is the fact that You’ve brought me near to Yourself through the blood of Jesus. And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Small Thing

Is it a small thing
that You died for me,
can I easily ignore
Your cross on Calvary?
Or do I fall to the floor
each time I see
how much Your blood
has salvaged me?

That God has brought me into such a beautiful blogging community is no small thing to me either. Thank you and God bless you!
