Let’s Contribute – the small stuff makes the BIGGEST impact!
There’s an old saying that says, “don’t sweat the small stuff!”
I understand this is trying to communicate that we shouldn’t worry about the small things that happen in our lives, because by doing so, we make them bigger than they really are.
The small stuff—the details—takes more time, work and effort than just showing up and serving my hour and then going home.
But, I think success can be found in the small stuff.
What if a volunteer greeted each family that came to the door, making sure to call them by name?
What if the volunteer made sure that each baby’s diaper was changed and clean before the parents arrived to pick them up?
What if the volunteer showed up a little early to make sure everything was set before the first child showed up?
But, imagine if small group leaders started making the small things BIG things. Imagine the BIG impact on preschoolers and their families when those small things become regular things.
It’s the SMALL stuff that can make the BIGGEST impact!!!
It’s the clean room, the changed diaper, and smile that is given that make a BIG impact in the life of a preschooler!
So, sweat the small stuff, because in reality, it’s the small stuff that’s BIG!!!
