#2 FORGET NOT: THE POWER OF ONE! ONE WITH COMPASSION MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

This is part two of a two part lesson.

I do this part in two parts.

Matthew 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

I start this sermon with a metal baseball bat.

I talk about how most of my life I have used the diplomacy of a ball bat.

I often used the mentally of the ball bat in my family.

In the church I have used a smaller ball bat, but how I would like at times to forcefully swing my bat and make people be faithful and have good attitudes.

Then I pull out an old towel, well worn.

I talk about Jesus’ attitude was to wash the feet of people that had not caught his message.

At the end of the service, I will give every one there a wash cloth, they have to grow it into the towel of servant-hood.

Matthew 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

I. DON’T DESPISE THE LITTLE? THE SUM TOTAL OF LITTLE CAN ADD UP?

Does what you are doing seem unimportant?

A. WHY CAN WE SEE --- NO WORK OF GOD THAT YOU DO TO RESTRAIN THE ENEMY AND AVERT HIS PLAN IS LITTLE?

B. GOD’S BLESSINGS SHOULD NEVER BE SEEN AS A LITTLE THING!

The WORD OF GOD does the WORK OF GOD.

C. Nothing ever accomplished by God’s power is insignificant, but it is MIGHTY TO TEAR DOWN THE STRONG HOLDS OF THE ENEMY.

Little things can have great ETERNAL VALUE!

D. One day in the 1880’s a little lady lived in a little house. There had been little rain that summer.

This morning there was a little wind blowing.

The little lady woke up one ordinary morning, it was still dark.

So the little lady picked up her little lamp with a little oil in it.

She picked up a little match and lit with the little fire the little lamp that produced a little light in the darkness.

She walked out to her little barn and walked their little cow into it’s little stall. The little lady got a little corn and a little hay and put it in front

of her little cow.

She took her little milk bucket and started milking a little milk from the little cow. There were a bunch of little flies flying around the little cow.

So the cow used it’s little tail to SHOO off the little flies.

The cows little tail knocked over the little lamp, and a little oil ran onto the little bit of dry hay and the little flame ignited a little fire.

The little lady didn’t think too much of the little fire. She ran to get a little bucket of water and it took a little while, when she returned her whole little barn was on fire.

The barn was burning and it caught the little house on fire, and that little house caught the next little house on fire.

BEFORE LONG THE LITTLE FIRES COMBINED TO MAKE WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE GREAT FIRE OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

The great fire burned over a square mile of homes and businesses.

Many died and much property was totally destroyed.

THE GREAT FIRE WAS A COMBINATION OF MANY LITTLE THINGS COMING TOGETHER AND CREATED A NIGHTMARE IN HISTORY.

E. DON’T DESPISE LITTLE THINGS.
