Today With God

And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, worth less than a penny.

[Mark 12:42 NET]

It is not the size of our achievement, as men see it, that makes its real value. A seed is a small thing, but it has in it a mysterious germ, and wherever it may fall it will grow into a beautiful thing. A secret lies hidden in many a quiet word or deed; it carries in it a germ of divine life.

“What can I do today?

Not praise to win, or glory to attain;

Not gold, or ease, or power, or love to gain,

Or pleasure gay;

But to impart

Joy to some stricken heart;

To send some heaven–born ray

Of hope, some sad, despairing

Soul to cheer;

To lift some weighting doubt;

Make truth more clear;

Dispel some dwarfing fear;

To lull some pain;

Bring to the fold again

Some lamb astray;

To brighten life for some one,

Now and here,

This let me do today.”
