Read Luke 13:18

"Don't sweat the small stuff." I'm not sure who said that, but it can be an incredible challenge to remained focused on the big picture, the end goal, the desired result when managing a school or work project, a group of people, or the operations of a household. 

But, isn't it the small stuff that often times means and matters most? The smile in the grocery isle, the "good job" of a manager, a quiet "I love you" before ending a call or turning off the light. 

In verse 18 of Luke 13, Jesus is emphasizing that His Kingdom begins with small - mustard seed small - intentionality and grows into shelter and protection for the weary. "God, do something big in this situation!" is usually our hearts' cry, but perhaps for His order of things, His will, His kingdom to come into our lives - work, families, relationships - we need to intentionally ask, seek, plant something small ... and watch how the Master Gardener grows it! 

One great way to weave worship into our daily lives is to fill it with music that helps focus our hearts on our great God.  Here is a Spotify playlist that has all the songs our worship team has led us through in the last month’s Sunday evening services to get you started. http://bit.ly/GBCPMThisMonth It’s updated weekly, so “follow” it to keep fresh worship music in your life.
