Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Do Little Things Well
by Charles R. Swindoll

 

The commandment is a lamp,
and the teaching is light; and reproofs 
for discipline are the way of life.
Proverbs 6:23

If you want to be a person with a large vision, you must cultivate the habit of doing the little things well. That's when God puts iron in your bones! 

The test of my calling is not how well I do before the public on Sunday; it's how carefully I cover the bases Monday through Saturday when there's nobody to check up on me, when nobody is looking. 

When God develops character, He works on it throughout a lifetime. He's never in a hurry.

It is in the schoolroom of solitude and obscurity that we learn to become men and women of God. It is from the schoolmasters of monotony and reality that we learn to "king it." 

That's how we become—like David—men and women after God's own heart.
