Are you OK being a little person?

No I’m not talking about my height again. I know how tall I am not. 😀

Here’s the issue. Are you OK playing a seemingly small role? Can you be in the supporting cast?

This morning I was impressed with this little known guy named Hur. You can read about him in Ex 17:8-16. There was a battle going on. When Moses held his hands up the Israelites were winning. As Moses’ hands dropped they began to be beat. In comes two guys Aaron and Hur. They jumped in and supported Moses. They made sure Moses could hold his arms up. They weren’t the main character of the account. They were just doing their role. Aaron we know a lot about. Hur is only mentioned here in the Bible. An unknown man played a key role that day. He did his part, not the “big” part. He did what the Lord wanted him to do. Am I willing to play whatever part the Lord asks me to do in His story today??
What have you been impressed with from your reading?

    Kind of reminds me of the disciple Andrew. If it weren’t for quiet, mild mannered Andrew, we may have had no Peter. Andrew, Peter’s brother, was content serving in the background. We have no great miracles from Andrew, no spectacular stories. In fact, we pretty much only know that he was one of Jesus first followers and that he lead his loud and outspoken brother to follow, “the messiah”. That and he had faith enough in Jesus’ ability to figure out how to feed 5000 people with two fish and five loaves of bread.

      Donny, I love what you wrote. I never thought of Andrew’s powerful “quiet life.” It can be hard for many to be OK this kind of life out of the limelight. We can see how effective Andrew’s ministry was.
      My other favorite verse connected to this theme is. 1 Thessalonians 4:11 “Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands,” NIV
