In my ally bible reading app The Bible In A Year by Nicky Gumble, I am in the last book, Revalation. An often misunderstood book. It begins with seven oracles to the seven churches. Two of which are blessings, not curses. That’s a good sign.
Anyway, in the devotional part of the app, his wife Pipa wrote this.
‘To the church in Ephesus... in Smyrna... in Pergamum’
I wonder what Jesus would say about our church. Maybe all the things we think we do rather well, he wouldn’t be impressed with. He would probably be pleased with the small acts of faith that we don’t particularly notice.”
Her works make me think about the little things we do in life to help the people around us. Even the smallest acts of kindness are seen by Jesus as well as revered and rewarded. Blessings come both big and small. They come from God to you. And from you back to God. The circle of kindness is never broken, never ending.
