Character Revealed in Little Things
Proverbs 16:17; 20:11; 27:19; 1 Peter 3:13–17
Little things are the best signs of character. Straws thrown into the air show which way the wind blows much better than the throwing up of bullets or cannonballs. In great things we have more thought of others, we are moved more by surrounding influences. In little things there is not the same possibility of concealment. We must sometimes forget, and then we act ourselves.
Augustus Hopkins Strong (1836 – 1921)
