Little Things: Whereunto They May Grow

Resource Toolbox

When the air balloon was first discovered, a matter-of- fact gentleman contemptuously asked Dr. Franklin what was the use of it. The doctor answered this question by asking another:: 'What is the use of a new-born infant? It may 6ecome a man.' This anticipation of great things springing from small beginnings should induce us to put into practice those holy promptings which at certain seasons move our souls. What if we ourselves and our work should be little in Zion; cannot the Lord cause the grandest issues to proceed from insignificant beginnings? Who hath despised the day of small things?
