Little Things Matter

Whatever a person sows he will also reap. —Galatians 6:7

My dad frequently emphasized the impor- tance of seemingly minor choices and habits—things that on the face of it may appear to be insignificant. Those “little things” include what time we go to bed and get up; what we eat, when, and how much; how we spend our money . . . and on and on.

God’s Word is clear that we reap what we sow. Every choice sows a seed. And it will reap a harvest. The challenging thing is that the harvest isn’t usually immediate. My dad used to say, “You are what you have been becoming. And you will be down the road what you are becoming now.”

The good news is even if you’ve made choices you regret, there’s hope! That’s what grace is for. That’s what the cross is about—the only means by which the losses occasioned by our sin can be redeemed and we can be made “new creatures.” By the power of the Holy Spirit, those bad habits can be broken and we can walk in a way that’s pleasing to God.

Make it Personal

How can you make choices today that will produce good fruit for God’s glory?
