Faithful in the Small Stuff

Please note: The amazing four year old pictured here is my grandson Jack Kidder. He is handing out daily dog biscuits to his two huge labs, Bella and Laddie, who obey only when the spirit moves them, or it's raining, or Daddy's home. But today Jack is in charge. He has what they want and makes them sit and wait a moment like two trained seals. It's a beautiful sight.

Jack is learning what every good child needs to learn, including me. Being faithful to do little things well, even when nobody's looking but the dogs, builds a character God and everybody else can trust.

Thanks, Jack. I needed that.
