Some Little Things That Make a Big Difference
Little books make a big difference.
And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, give me THE LITTLE BOOK.
And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
And I took THE LITTLE BOOK out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

Without going to Bible school and without having the support of certain ministers of the gospel, a little book raised me out of nowhere to write to you. You are reading this article because of the power of little books.
- Little children make a big difference
But Jesus said suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Little children are also the key to greatness because Jesus taught that the humility of children was the greatest key to greatness. Jesus said the greatest person was the little child. A child’s ability to forgive and forget is a revelation of true greatness. A child’s ability to play with other children of other backgrounds is a revelation of true greatness. A child’s ability to learn and copy is a revelation of true greatness. A child’s ability to copy from another is a revelation of true greatness. May you have the spirit of a child so that you can develop the art of following!
Little children are often discounted as being insignificant. Yet, it is the little children who are the key to the expansion of the kingdom. Little children are the key to your church growth. Little children are the key to your missionary work. Little children are the people who will respond to you and to your evangelistic efforts. Jesus said that the kingdom of Heaven is made up of such people.
Indeed, little children can make a great difference in our lives if we will learn from them and become like them.
- A little wine makes a big difference
Drink no longer water, but use A LITTLE WINE for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.
A little wine made a big difference to Timothy’s health. How important it is to believe that little things can make a big difference to our health. Little sips of coca cola could make a big difference to your size and weight. Little tablets taken every day could also make a big difference to how long you live.
- A little slumber makes a big difference
Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
A little more sleep than necessary can make a big difference to your financial situation. A little sleep, when you should have been studying can mean that you become a clerk instead of a lawyer. A little sleep instead of diligently working on your farm could mean that your chickens could be eaten by a fox. It may be an hour’s sleep or a few minutes rest, but you must be careful. Resting and relaxing too early or too much can be a most dangerous activity.
Indeed, a good leader believes that little things make a big difference! May you be a leader who does not ignore the little things that will make a huge difference! May your attention to useful little things give you a big advantage!
