Blooming Their Little Hearts Out

On one occasion, my wife, Margaret, and I were walking on a small stone walkway in a little village. Between two stones, we noticed some small violets which were, in the words of Margaret, “blooming their little hearts out!” They were blooming even though they were “surrounded by stones” and no one was seeing them except God, but isn’t He enough? These beautiful violets were simply doing what they were created to do: to bloom where they were. We also need to do what God created us to do: to glorify Him even if we are in the middle of the AIDS crisis in Africa or working with street children in Manila. Even though we may be surrounded by the stones of life, God sees and isn’t He enough? May we each serve our Sovereign Lord among the masses of the world for His Gospel and His glory! For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)
