What beautiful words from Mother Teresa: “Do small things with great love.”

Of course, that sounds pretty. But really – think about it. What if we stop worrying so much about doing something GREAT, and focus more on doing what is right in front of us – no matter how small – with GREAT LOVE.

My days are filled with small things.

Small children. Small toys. Small errands. Small chores. Small small small.

So, what does it look like to pack my son’s lunch with great love? to do our family’s laundry with great love? to buy groceries with great love? to paint my daughter’s nails with great love? to cook dinner with great love? to vacuum with great love?

Those all end with a question mark because I don’t really know the answer. But I’d like to give it a shot and see what I find out.

Would you join me in that?

Let’s begin with a collective sigh of relief. Ladies, God didn’t command us to “DO SOMETHING GREAT.” He told us to love.

And as we explored earlier this week, to love is NOT to feel certain feelings. To love is to SHOW UP. And to KEEP SHOWING UP.

Small things ABOUND.

God, let our love abound greater still.

    When we are able to do these small things with great love, it truly is GREAT in God’s eyes! Remember, “God loves a cheerful giver.” That doesn’t just mean a money offering! And just so you know, I think it’s evident that you do many small things with great love. Just say’in! Love you!
