I love reading John Piper’s blog and listening to him preach online. I thought this blog posting of his while short, really carried a much needed message, especially for those who Pastor, or attend small churches. Here it is.

“There are saving works that God will only do through small churches and ordinary people, not through large churches and more sophisticated people.

The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’” (Judges 7:2)

Beware of missing your appointed fruit by envying bigger trees.”
