Don’t Be Too Big To Start Small

Never be too good to start small. A mighty oak tree was once a little nut who refused to give up. If you’re going to do something great you have to not be afraid of being called a nut.

Every large corporation or ministry started small somewhere. As I write this I would I guess you’ve heard of a little company called Amazon. It’s the largest online retailer in the world. I read a recent statistic that said it’s product search engines are used more than Google. That’s a little hard to imagine.

Did you know the CEO, Jeff Bezos, started the company in his garage? He started small, but he never let the size of his start determine his vision.

Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” Zechariah 4:10

I love this verse because God encourages us to not look down on our small beginnings. It goes on to say he rejoices when we start something small. How encouraging is that? God loves an underdog story. If you don’t believe me, read the Bible because it’s full of examples of this.

One last thing, don’t play the comparison game with your small start because you’ll lose every time. It’s too easy to look at what someone else has or what they are doing and compare ourselves to them. I heard someone say, “Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.” That’s pretty good advice because we often do this.

Question: What has God called you to start? What dream have you laid down that you need to pick back up?
