My Bible reading today was from Matthew 5:13-20, part of the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus was talking to the crowd about being salt and light – making a difference for him in our communities. Sometimes I am tempted to think that this difference has to be a big thing. Then I read this today:
When Desmond Tutu was a boy, he saw a white priest doff his hat to his mother, who was a black domestic cleaner. That small courtesy changed his life.
Little things can make a big difference. To whom will you doff your hat today (literally or metaphorically)? What small thing does God want you to do that will put some savour in someone else’s life or shine some light into their darkness?
Be blessed, be a blessing
