STOP AND THINK – Sometimes the smallest things can take up the most room in your heart. (Winnie the Pooh, a cartoon character)

Often there’s much we can learn from children’s stories. And from childish experiences, too. Remember the times when you were all wrapped up with some incidental event in your younger years? Like the princess and the pea (another children’s story), we sometimes let the smallest things take all our attention while we ignore the larger issues of life.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
