You’ve heard it said that “one drop in the pond doesn’t make much difference,” but another perspective is if those individual drops didn’t show up, there wouldn’t be a pond.
I’m listening to the rain fall; it sounds a vigorous as a mountain waterfall this morning.
The plants soak up the wet goodness, the leaves and grass turn greener already, and the ground gulps the water like a kid after racing his hardest outside with friends on a sweltering summer day.
One drop of rain might not make a huge different to that tomato plant in the ground desperate for moisture, but it helps.
And a pure, soaking rain takes many drops working together.
And, I think: we each have our choices to make on what we do with what we have available to give.
Mother Theresa says, “We can do no great things; only small things with great love.”
What would happen if so many more of us did our part and choose goodness and kindness and love over all else?
What kind of effect could we have if we poured His love down on thirsty souls, and we did it together?
“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.” ― Mother Teresa
The rain strengthens now, but this morning what I hear falling is peaceful, soak-you-through-to-the-heart love.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16
Today, I’ve joined Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday. Five minutes where we “just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.” No editing or backtracking! Join in on the Five Minute fun, won’t you?
What kindness and goodness can you pour out today, or what kindness has fallen on you?
