Some men think that religion lies in great things. It does not; it lies in little things. Take any one day of our lives: We eat, drink, rise in the morning, go to bed at night, nothing very particular about the day. Our life is made up of little things, and if we are not careful of little things, we shall not be careful of great ones. If we do not take care of little things, the great ones will go wrong.
Oh, may you have grace to so live that the world may find no fault in you; and if in little things they see an exactness and almost precision (and too much precision will be better than the looseness of the morals of some) then they will say, “There is something in religion; that man’s life has confirmed it in my mind, because he lives up to it.”

Dear Lord, I want my life to reflect You so that I am contagious for You. Please help me make a big deal out of You in every area of my life, trusting You to live Your life through me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
