Here’s why you should keep collecting those acorns


You may be doing something right now that seems so small, so insignificant that you struggle with why it’s worth doing in the first place.

But most everything that is large now had similar beginnings. Small. Insignificant.

The Majestic Oak (Savannah, GA) was, about 400 years ago, an acorn. Less than the size of a quarter.

Facebook wasn’t always Facebook (it was an insignificant project called Thefacebook).

Google was supposed to be Googol in the beginning. It averaged about 10K searches a day when Will Smith was ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It’. Now it’s processing 40K searches a second (that’s 3.5 BILLION–with a B–per day).

The Church and all the denominations and non-denominations therein, that massive, universal reality that has thrived no matter the challenges faced, was sitting at about 120 people in Acts 1 before it began multiplying.

Big things have small beginnings. Keep doing the small things well. Better often precedes bigger. But regardless of growth, God is honored when we work as unto Him, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
