The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just
than when we offer him sacrifices.
God is more interested in what we do in life’s little spaces than all the big things we try to accomplish.
As you travel down life’s road, notice little moments, little opportunities, and little people.
Paul Horst taught me how to raise a garden. When he weeded, instead of quickly chopping through the row with a hoe, he knelt down, got close to each plant, tenderly plucked out the weeds, and worked up a little mound of soil around it. He gave each plant a gentle pat before moving on to the next one.
Don’t hurry through life. Care for each person as precious. Carefully nurture each moment’s opportunity. In the end, you’ll leave this life a lush garden that gives life to many.
