When you have a Sunday School class of six and only two arrive, it's hard to keep your spirits up, right? If there are normally 50 in your congregation and one day only 25 show up, it’s difficult to have a positive attitude. Or, if there are 40 who could come to pray but only 5 attend the meeting, it is so easy to complain.
How important to remember that Noah and his family were the only ones in the world to enter the ark and Philip left a revival with hundreds of converts to go talk to a lone Ethiopian. As with them and many others, sometimes God will have us in a small, inconspicuous corner, or serving a very few people. This should not worry or bother us in the least, because the main thing is that we are serving Him. The size of the ministry or the number of listeners is of no importance when our ministry is His perfect will.
Feed the individual or the little group with the exact spiritual banquet (and attitude) you would offer to a huge crowd.
(Judges 7:2; Daniel 3:18; Acts 8:27)
