SMALL BEGINNINGS

His master said to him, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.” – Matthew 25: 21

The priest heard the commotion. He asked the sacristan to call back “his friend,” the cause of the ruckus, to stay on. After the Mass, he gave the ruffian his first catechism. A week later, Bartholomew Garelli returned with his companions to know God more and to play with his new friend.
That priest was St. John Bosco. His Salesians are all over the world. They bring the young to Jesus through education and play.
Great things come from small beginnings; a house is built brick by brick. Don Bosco started his ministry with one boy and now, countless kids benefit from his system.
Our life is our masterpiece for God, our greatest achievement for Him. Every good word we say, every good deed we do is a small step. Even when it seems that we fall and fail, we must rise up and persevere. Despite not noticing anything substantial, we must strive to become holy. Like Don Bosco, we start with small things — praying, not swearing and telling the truth — and keep at it.
When all these things add up, God will see His masterpiece that we have become. Jun Asis (mabuting.balita@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Are we growing tired of doing the small things for God? Are we too impatient with God’s masterpiece in us?

Lord, grant me the grace to walk each small step towards Your greatest masterpiece in me.
