DO WE VALUE LITTLE THINGS? VERY LITTLE THINGS?

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

TEXT:

Luke 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a

very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and

shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes

of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

Zechariah 4:10 (MSG) Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings? They'll change

their tune when they see Zerubbabel setting the last stone in place!" Going back to the vision,

the Messenger-Angel said, "The seven lamps are the eyes of God probing the dark corners

of the world like searchlights."

Review:

EVE NEVER COUNTED THE COST? Discord? A grave?

ACHAN never considered the price of that GOLD and fancy clothes?

MOSES was to speak to the rock? IN ANGER and frustration? COST?

GEHAZI --- servant of Elisha, picks up LEPROSY from a healing NAAMAN?

THOMAS--- COST OF MISSING...

MANY CAN SEE THE VALUE OF SOMETHING TODAY...

WE NEED DREAMERS.... WE NEED TO SEE THE POTENTIAL.

Genesis 37:19 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

Very seldom does one find a great wealth of raw DIAMONDS above the ground, where you

just bend over and pick a bag of diamonds.

GREAT PEARLS do not grow on trees and you just pick them.

GREAT DEPOSITS OF GOLD RARELY EXIST ....JUST JUMPING OUT AT YOU.

Few people can identify a great diamond in the rough.

The beautiful diamond cannot be seen by the average eye, only a trained eye.

Once when I was a boy, a Sunday school teacher told me, "You are a mean, bad boy!..."

They refused to see a school teacher? a pastor?

Pastors and Parents often criticize and put down and dwarf growth. If it is not worth praise,

is it worth whining?

Value is the life giving power of anything...

Cost is the quantity of labor required to produce anything....

CAN WE UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF LITTLE/SMALL/ SEEMINGLY WEAK THINGS...

Remember JACK and the SEEDS --- THE BEAN STALK?

Remember the hole in the dike, the little boy places his finger and saves the nation?

REMEMBER:

1. MOSES' ROD?

2. SAMSON'S JAWBONE?

3. THE CLOUD THE SIZE OF A MAN'S HAND? ELIJAH --- AHAB --- DRY DROUGHT?

4. DAVID'S 5 SMOOTH STONES?

WE CAN MISS MIRACLES BECAUSE WE ARE SEARCHING FOR GIANTS?

WE OFTEN UNDERSTAND PRICE --- AND REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND WORTH? COST?

Price is the quantity of labor which its possessor will take in exchange for it.

Nothing is WORTH more than what the purchaser will pay for it?

COME WITH ME --- LET US REASON --- LITTLE THINGS MATTER...

UNDERSTAND WITH ME HOW VAULABLE, HOW COSTLY, HOW MUCH SMALL

THINGS ARE WORTH...

Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and

shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes

of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

Zechariah 4:10 (MSG) Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings? They'll change
