Where's The Piccolo?

At several times in life, we may feel petty and useless. Surrounded by people with higher talent than ours, we are tempted in our weak moments just to settle back and let somebody else do the work. We assume that what we have to give won't make much difference anyway. We forget the truth hinted by our Lord's use of five loaves and two small fish to feed a multitude (John 6:1-14).

Each of us has something important to offer in His service.

Sir Michael Costa was conducting a rehearsal in which the orchestra was accompanied by a great chorus. About midway through the session, with trumpets blasting, drums rolling, and violins singing their rich melody, the piccolo player muttered to himself, "What good am I doing? I might just as well not be playing. Nobody can hear me anyway." So he kept the instrument to his mouth, but he made no sound. Within moments, the conductor cried, "Stop! Stop! Where's the piccolo?" It was missed by the ear of the most important person of all.

It's much the same way with the use of our talents for the Lord. Whether our talent is great or small, the performance isn’t complete until we do our best with what we have.

-Richard De Haan

The Master needs what you have to offer

No matter if you think it's small

His work on earth is done through His children

So give Him your best, give your all. –Hess

In God's eyes, it is a great thing

To do a little thing well.
