LITTLE THINGS - BIG BLESSINGS


When we lived in Houston, Texas, our oldest Spencer was born. Spencer was placed in one of the vast Texas-sized nurseries at this hospital. There in that nursery, I met a group of volunteers who were all from a nearby church. The job of these volunteers in the nursery was to simply hold the newborn babies. They would come and take turns spending an hour or two just holding little infants - and silently pray for each of these children.


Small thing? Yes. Effective? We may not know, until we stand before God at the end of all things. Perhaps these will be the only prayers these children will receive, perhaps the time spent in the arms of one of these volunteers will be the only time these children will experience the Holy Spirit in their childhood. Perhaps what these people do will matter little in the lives of these children.


Then again, perhaps these church volunteers are putting The Antioch Effect into practice - Obedience to the Holy Spirit in small things, leads to far-reaching blessings.
