Many of the problems in this world seem overwhelming- poverty, disease, war. The scale of these issues can leave those wanting to make a difference feeling powerless. You wonder, “What can I do with the little bit I have to give?” And so sometimes we do nothing. We give up in frustration, even despair. In my new book Be Encouraged there is an essay called Planting Seeds. Small acts can lead to great things. Even a small seed can bear fruit that fills up empty lives and make a huge difference.
One woman did not let what little she had to give stop her from thinking big. Sonia Waters could not simply walk away from the needs of a tiny African village. When you think you’re too small to make a dent in a huge problem just remember- have the faith of a mustard seed!
