Some encouraging advice from Jesus today:

Matthew 10:41-42. This is a large work I've called you into, but don't be overwhelmed by it. It's best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won't lose out on a thing. The Message Bible

Sometimes we can easily get lost in reaching for big dreams and huge visions that we lose the importance of the everday and the ordinary. Jesus wanted his disciples to take the good news of the kingdom to the world (that's BIG!) but he wanted them to do so by taking simple steps each day – as simple as giving a cup of water to someone right in front of you who is thirsty.

Mother Teresa got this:

"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love."

"There are many people who can do big things, but there are very few people who will do the small things."

What small step will you take today?
