However, it's in the little things that we can find the most joy. When we are grateful for the little things in life, we can be grateful for everything in life. When the little things are not meaningless, but rather meaningful, then every gift is a treasure. Every time we receive even the smallest of things, compliments , gifts etc. do we complain that it's so small or are we extremely grateful, even if it is just small?
Whenever I receive a letter in the mail or a freshly picked rose, it brightens up my day like no one would believe! :) Yes, my love language happens to be gifts, but that doesn't change the fact that even the little things can be precious to me.
Do you enjoy the small things you receive?
I'm not a great one for doing the little, meaningless tasks that I'm sometimes called to do. However, in the times that I did rejoice in the task, small though it was, I was filled with joy knowing that Christ sees even the little things we do. One day we will be rewarded for the little that we do. Even if no one notices, can we really be joyful in doing the small things?
Try doing the little things this week! Brighten someones day with something small, but meaningful! You'll be surprised how blessed and loved that someone will feel! It will also make you feel joyful too!
Have you ever received something small, but meaningful? What was it? Do you like to do the little things or the big things?
