All That Matters

I have this obedience training with shopping carts. If you don’t know about it, you can read it here.

To be promoted in life, I do my best to take good care of what I already have. If I can’t handle what’s been entrusted to me, there’s no need to be trusted with more. (Matt. 25:21)

I went to the market this week, and as I was putting up my shopping cart, I noticed the carts were askew. I took a minute to straighten them out, by placing the large ones on the left and small carts on the right. This gave ample space for more carts.

There was a young man sitting in a car in front of the carts watching me. He could tell I didn’t work there, so he was probably wondering why I was doing that.

This was more than just returning my cart. I was straightening all of them.

Walking back to my truck I thought, “There’s always someone watching.” I paused a moment to take in my surroundings and it didn’t bother me that someone had seen what I’d done. I know there is One who is always watching, and that’s really all that matters.

The Shopping Cart

I want God to do big things in my life.

He has done many big things for me over the years, but the big things are easy to notice. It’s the small, everyday things I tend to take for granted.

Over my life, I’ve listened to a lot of Joyce Meyer teachings. Her words stick with me. She is the only person who can yell and make me feel better!

Early in Joyce’s ministry, God prompted her to put her grocery cart back in it’s designated area after shopping. This seems so small, but to God it’s big.

It’s simple obedience.

I’ve stopped at this local store twice this week. Both times there was a shopping cart sitting on the sidewalk of the store in my path. I grabbed it and walk it inside.

I do the same thing at the grocery store.

Maybe that’s make it easier on the next person.

Thank you God for keeping an eye on me with the little things. God begins small and gradually builds from there. We have to be prepared for big.

A lot of small steps lead to big, and a better life may be disguised as the shopping cart.
