The Small Stuff - May 20, 2021

D.L. Moody was one of the most influential Christians of his generation. He led thousands of people to faith and established many institutions of education and training. He was famous for saying, “Right now I’m having so much trouble with D. L. Moody that I don’t have time to find fault with the other fellow.”

There is a time to speak up. But before you do, check your motives. The goal is to help, never to hurt. Look at yourself before you look down on others. Rather than put them in their place, put yourself in their place. The truth is we all drop the ball on occasion. So shouldn’t we bear with one another?

The clear majority of details in the world are simply that—small stuff. Don’t sweat the small stuff, and you won’t sweat much at all. Life is too precious and brief to be spent in a huff.  This is how happiness happens.
