Matthew 5:3

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. - Matthew 5:3

Dear Jesus,

I was born wanting to be big, important and meaningful. I thought it was the way to life. But you teach me that the way to true spiritual life is to be small, to need grace and mercy, to know one's place before your throne. Then you give me blessing and opportunity to bless others and have impact without pride. You give me the kingdom of your love. Oh Jesus, keep me small in my own sight so I can let you be big for me and through me. Give me someone today to bless without concern of what I might get in return. AMEN

Pastor Don Patterson

It is becoming small that our lives are enlarged by his grace.
