We have become so enamored with chasing after big visions that we often forget the power of ordinary living. But God works in the ordinary; and much of the decisive moments of Bible history happened in ordinary places. Esau lost his birthright in the kitchen. Moses parted the Red Sea with an old man’s walking stick. Jesus used bread and wine as symbols of the new covenant. The truth is that big visions are often achieved by faithful, ordinary Christian living, not by sporadic spasms of great deeds.
