DREAM BIG, START SMALL - Daily Bible Reflections October 1,2013


Memorial of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, virgin, Patroness of the Missions
 

DREAM BIG, START SMALL

 
He resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem. – Luke 9:51
 
One day, a friend tells me, “Bo, I’m talking with some Japanese billionaires. They’re selling a prime property of 200 hectares for a malunggay factory.” Wow.
       On another day, he tells me, “I’m brokering a deal with the Koreans. They want to invest 100 billion to start an herbal company.” Amazing.
       And after each conversation, he’d tell me, “Bo, once this deal is finished, I’ll donate P25 million to your ministry.”       But sadly, I’ve been talking to the guy for 13 years, and not a single deal has pushed through.
       What’s wrong with him? He’s not starting small. He’s trying to catch big fish before small fish.
       Start small. If you start small, you make small mistakes. But if you start big, you’ll make big mistakes. That’s very costly and painful.
       This applies to our ministries, too. We dream big for God, but we start small. As we get better in our service, we grow bigger.
       God uses us in Jerusalem first — in our home ground. If we persevere and are faithful in doing His will, He will expand our impact to the entire world. Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed... Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree....” (Matthew 13:31-32)
 
Help me to grow in the virtue of perseverance, Lord.
 
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, virgin, Patroness of the Missions, pray for us.
