Notice Tiny Things and each of us just might see something that is not normal! What? Yes, by slowing down are hurried pace we will be able to notice tiny things in our lives. God just also might be in the little items of our life. God is not only in the huge life changing events of our lives, but as we notice tiny things we will see God.

Notice Tiny Things
The scripture that comes to mind as I was preparing to write this BlogMission article is from the book of Matthew chapter 25, verses 31 to 46. What I’m going to do here is type out the entire passage from the New International Version 1978, because it has relevant value for the title of this post, Notice Tiny Things. Ready… ??
The Sheep and the Goats
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory.
All the nations will be gathered before him and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you come to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirst and give you something to drink?
When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
1 Corinthians 12:3
The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,
I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
The above story is commonly called, The Parable of the Sheep and Goats.
What each of us receive from this parable will be determined where we are in our life. Some of us are givers. Some of us are users. Some of us are takers. Some of us know the Lord Jesus Christ and are saved. Some of us do not know Jesus at all nor are interested in knowing him. Some of us hate God. Some of us love God. Some of us give and help everyday of our lives. Some of us give sometimes. Some of us give at certain times. Some of us never give. Some of us love giving and helping and serving all the time. Some of us . . .
. . . you finish the story, because in the end, it’s not about me, no, it will be all about YOU my friend . . .
Respectfully in Jesus,
Since I don’t know what kind of plant or bloom I photographed, here is something unique and purple!!
Wikipedia: Stephanomeria exigua (Small Wirelettuce) is a perennial or biennial plant native to the western United States. It is thought to be the parent species of Stephanomeria malheurensis (Malheur wirelettuce), an endangered plant species found only in southern Oregon. It generally blooms from mid-spring to late summer and produces small, light pink or light purple blooms.
I love the tiny things that God creates. I love noticing each tiny thing as I live my day. When I notice these tiny things, it reminds me that slowing down in life is better that a hurried pace.
