 Words of Wisdom

          Taken from "A Word Fitly Spoken"  is like apples of Gold in settings of silver.

Little things mean a lot. On the night the Titanic sank, there were no binoculars in the crow's nest. Not one pair. One set could have saved over 1500 lives. There was not one red flare on board the ship. A red flare is the international symbol for help. A white flare is for celebration. There were only white flares onboard. One red flare could have saved 1500 lives. If the water temperature were below a certain degree they knew the ship was in ice fields and had to slow down. The temperature was taken by dropping a canvas bag with a rope to take a water sample. But the rope was too short for the monster ship. The officer in charge filled the bag with drinking water, and no one knew the difference. One long rope could have saved 1500 lives. I realize that letting go of the ways of the world, changing your life in a major way, and making a decision to live for Christ may not seem like much, but it could make all the difference in the world.

What little things in your own life have led to bigger and better things?

Matthew 14: 17
