The Little People

Do you ever think of how much God uses little people? Mary and Joseph were little people. Outside of Nazareth, not many people knew who they were. They were not famous or "important".
Look at Nazareth.....little town, little people, yet we recognize that town because of two little people who were willing to follow Gods call. In this vast world, with billions of people, it's easy to feel like a little, unimportant person. I'm sure Mary didn't feel like anything spectacular and Joseph, he was just a small town carpenter. They were just simple, little people, but God had a purpose for those little people, and He was able to send His Son to the world because those little people were willing to obey His call. I don't think it is accidental that God placed His Son into the home of two very little people. God sees man's heart. He was not looking for a palace of splendor, but rather hearts of humility and obedience.

So, if you are feeling like a little, unimportant person, take heart. God uses the smallest of people to accomplish His biggest plans.
