Quotable quote: Faithfulness

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. - Mother Teresa.

I know Mother Teresa probably didn't mean the small things we give up for lent.

I'm sure she meant acts of mercy, grace and charity; along with our service to God.

But today I'm being faithful in my decision to fast from Starbucks (because my students asked) and from Cokes (and Dr Pepper) because I felt convicted that I was drinking way too much of them when stressed.

Today, I am faithful in the small things. Because honestly, I really wanted a soda today.

But instead I'll pray for my students - and hope they are being faithful in their own fasts.
