"Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little."
- Edmund Burke
This quote struck me, as my mind went immediately to the issue of abortion and the seemingly impossible giant to defeat that it is. Little people with little actions we may be, but when God orchestrates and uses each one of us - there is no limit to the impact He can make. A little prayer is never in vain. A little donation to your local pregnancy center is never useless. I little sacrifice of comfort and warmth while praying on the sidewalk is never worthless.
Whenever I pass by Planned Parenthood on my trip to the bank, I always feel led to stop and pray on the sidewalk. I always fight it, I'm always uncomfortable, but in the end the Lord has His way and I follow. It's usually only 10 minutes at best, and then I'll leave. I have not seen any impact yet, but I trust that no prayer is ever in vain, and perhaps one day I may see the fruit!
Whatever God is calling you to do for Him, no matter how small it may be - You never know how He might multiply your efforts. Just as the boy gave his little lunch to Jesus; He multiplied it to feed thousands. HE is ABLE!
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain"
1 Corinthians 15:58
