LITTLE DEEDS

Little Deeds

For whoever will give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because you are Christ’s,

most certainly I tell you, he will in no way lose his reward. – Mark 9:41

It seems wonderful indeed that God should keep note of such a little thing as the giving
of a cup of water to a thirsty. It shows how dear to Him are His people, since the smallest
things done to one of them He accepts, remembers, and rewards.

The mention here of the giving of a cup of water suggests that this promise is for little,

commonplace acts, rather than for great deeds. We are too stingy with our helpfulness.
God has put His gifts of love into our hearts, not to be kept locked up and useless,
but to be given out.

We would call a man selfish who should refuse a cup of water to one who was thirsty;

yet many of us do this continually. It is the heart that thirsts, and the water we refuse
to give is human kindness.

Kindness is just the word for these small acts. Kindness is love flowing out in little

gentleness’s. We ought to carry our lives so that they will be perpetual benedictions
wherever we go. All we need for such a ministry is a heart full of love for Christ;
for if we truly love Christ we shall also love our fellow-men, and love willalways
find ways of helping.

A heart filled with gentleness cannot be miserly of its benedictions.
