Despise Not Small Beginnings

Michael K Spirituality 9 Comments

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin..” –Zechariah 4:10 (NLT) That which is now big often began small.

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” — John 1:14 (KJV) If not for God’s grace, we’d be condemned for our sins. If not for God’s truth, we’d be left to remain forever in them. The Church has largely struggled to manage the tension that exists between these two. On one end of the spectrum, some churches and Christians equate grace with politically correct views that never …
