Making Small Opportunities Great

“Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.”-Orison Swett Marden

We often pray for the great opportunities that we want God to deliver on in the future as if whatever opportunities we have now are nowhere near as important.  We hope that capitalizing on great opportunities will bring the desired outcomes in our lives.  What if God wants us to make the most of the small opportunities that we already have?  Maybe we should not wait for God to give us great opportunities, but instead, we simply make the most of the opportunities that we already have—whether it be the job that we currently working, the resources we have, or the family we were blessed to be born into—there are opportunities for greatness every day if we simply take time to notice and capitalize on them.  Let us prayerfully go to God today to ask Him to help us make the most of every opportunity, even small ones, to make them great.

The master said, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let's celebrate together!' (Matt 25:23, NLT)
