Sometimes, giving out of your pain seems unattainable. That’s because you are looking to do something big.

Did you know that Jesus said the least in the kingdom is the greatest? In other words, we often look for the biggest and brightest and best of everything – when God almost always picks the smallest, and dimmest, and the least of everything.

Jesus was born in a barn. Not a castle.

Your giving can be useless and small in your eyes, but it’s a sacrifice God takes note of.

And you know something? It seems to be the secret to soothing your hurting heart — giving of yourself even when you’re sad.


And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones … truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.

-The Bible
