My son loves to build with Legos. He loves making random things from his imagination, but he especially loves building from a set of plans. We sort all the pieces by color or size, then he gets to work building. Small piece connects to small piece connects to small piece until eventually you have a cool car, plan, or other gadget.

Big things are made out of little things. The individual Lego bricks aren’t anything special on their own really. But when you combine them with other pieces, something bigger and better appears. The same is true with our walk with the Lord. Listen to God’s plan for walking closer and closer with Him:

You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates… Deuteronomy 11:18-20

Big things are made out of little things. For most people, there’s not a single, miraculous event that brought them close to God. It’s small things adding up over time to something bigger and better. It’s seeing Bible verses on post-it notes around the house or small conversations with God along the road. It’s teachable moments with children or memorizing small passages of Scripture.

Do you want to be closer with God? Do the small things. Read a couple verses from your Bible each day—start with just 2-3 verses and see what happens. Pray for 30 seconds in the morning and ask God to be with you during the day. Do the small things, because God will put those small pieces together and before you know it, something bigger and better will appear. You’ll find that big faith is made out of little steps over time.
