A Little Place

A Little Place

"Where shall I work today, dear Lord?" 
And my love flowed warm and free. 
He answered and said, 
"See that little place? 
Tend that place for Me."
I answered and said, "Oh no, not there! 
No one would ever see. 
No matter how well my work was done, 
Not that place for me!"
His voice, when He spoke, was soft and kind, 
He answered me tenderly, 
"Little one, search that heart of thine, 
Are you working for them or Me? 
Nazareth was a little place … So was Galilee"

"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me."
Matthew 25:40 b

"He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much, and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much."  Luke 16:10
