An Ode to small things
“Do not despise these small things…” Zechariah 4 verse 10 (New Living Translation, NLT). For beautiful and big things can come from something small. In short: “small things matter”. The rest of this lecture illustrates this fundamental point that God uses small things to bring about His plan. He has used very small things, that can be seen as trifles, to guide my academic career to this point. The lesson: Every small thing matters; do not look down on anything or anyone.
