“The earth is like the human heart.  The great glowing fire is God in the heart of the earth, and the great sun is God in the sky, keeping it warm on the other side.  Your gladness and pleasure, your trouble when you do wrong, your love for all about you, that is God inside you; and all the beautiful things and lovable people, all the lessons you get, and whatever comes to you, is God outside of you” – Donal Grant (The Shepherd’s Castle)


 


Today, one of the beautiful things I saw, one of the lovable people, one of the lessons was the excitement and joy of a little boy learning to tie his shoe.  If I could have such excitement…such pleasure in something nearly so small, what a difference it could make!


 


Luke 16:10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
