The smallest things we do become more than just a part of our own self. Every deed done leaves its mark, not just on those who are around us in life, but on life itself. Therefore, every impression we make is enduring.
When viewed like this, what tremendous responsibility is wrapped up in each day we are given from God. Those things which we do today last for eternity. A word spoken in the ear of the discouraged, a hand or restraint placed upon the arm of the tempted, the gift of prayer breathed softly on the life of the bereaved — we will never know the ministry that these deeds may perform, or the destiny to which they will travel.
