Too Light

It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel;
I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.
(Isaiah Isaiah 49:6 (ESV)

Too light a thing.

How often do we attempt things for God that are "too light"?

How often do we discount things as impossible that are, in reality, just about right?

Is it possible one reason the world doesn't believe is that we spend all our time on things that are too light? Things that don't let them see just how awesome our God is?

And what's "heavy" enough? Try taking salvation to the entire world. Try the "end of the earth." Try not settling for reaching a small percentage of our community. Try reaching everyone. Try not just impacting Ft Bragg. Try impacting every military base.

Try something that's too big for us but just right for God.

[Father, help me to not settle for "too light" things.]
