Psalm 34:18: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, He saves those whose spirits are crushed.”  On many famous accounts, God displayed his love in the big things: parting the red sea, saving Noah and his family from a global flood, sending his Son to die for our sins. But how does God display His love in little ways? Jesus showed love to: a man with leprosy; a mother-in-law; two men from Gadara; a bleeding woman; a mute man; a man with a shriveled hand and a boy with a demon.  These people weren’t big Hollywood celebs. They weren’t Fortune 500 money-makers. They weren’t British royalty. They were commoners. For the world’s intensive purposes, they were insignificant. Out of the 22 miracles Jesus performed on people, 20 came from insignificant backgrounds.  In our world, we may not be like Mother Theresa, but we can still do little acts of love.  Loving in the little things just needs available time and heart–and we all have that.  And these little acts of love for the not-so-significant have monumental, eternal impact. Think about it: you may be the ONLY one to smile at the grocery bagger. You may be the ONLY one to pray for the nail salon tech. You may be the only Jesus in someone’s little, nondescript, ordinary world. When we think about it in terms that God appoints our steps–toward these people–when he could have chosen someone else, you realize that loving on the not-so-significant is truly…one of the biggest honors in the world. Just ask Jesus.
