Reflecting on the parables in Mark chapter 4 is so encouraging. Let’s look at verses 30 - 32. Here Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed. It is the smallest of all seeds you would plant in the ground. Yet, when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants.
The point Jesus is making is never, Never, NEVER despise the day of small things! The prophet said the same thing in Zachariah 4:10. You could put it into an impact thought: Little is much when God is in it! I can attest to this in my own experience.
My mother, who never went to school a day in her life, came to trust in Jesus Christ as a teen. She immigrated to Canada where she met my father. They had four children, I was the third. Though my mother didn’t do much in the way of service publicly, she poured her life into prayer, her children and her grandchildren.
Over the years God answered her prayers and I became a Christian. Eventually I was called into His service. Over the years I have pastored, made mission trips to many parts of the world, written some books and articles that have reached thousands, and produced radio programs that reach tens of thousands throughout our country and many other countries of the world. What my mother poured into me might on the surface seem like very little, but over the years her faithfulness has resulted through my life alone in multitudes throughout the world being impacted for Christ. Only God knows the impact of her life.
Truly, little is much when God is in it.
