The Countless Lowly Ministries of the Every-days
(by J.R.Miller, “Help for the Day”)
“She has done what she could!”
It is in the everyday of life, that nearly all the world’s
best work is done.
The tall mountain-peaks lift their glittering crests into
the clouds, and win attention and admiration. But it is in the great
valleys and broad plains, that the harvests grow and the
fruits ripen, on which the millions of earth feed their hunger.
In the same way, it is not from the few great and conspicuous
deeds of life that the blessings chiefly come which make the world
better, sweeter, holier–but from the
countless lowly ministries of the every-days, the little
faithfulnesses that fill long years.
“Well done, good servant, because you have
been faithful in a very little thing”
