Day 230, August 28

In an earlier post, I wrote about beehives.  To recap, a single bee contributes 1/12 of a teaspon of nectar to make a quart of honey.  A tiny amount, to be sure.  Yet, each bee's contribution is significant.

Do you ever feel like your contribution isn't significant?  I do.  I feel that way all the time.  What difference does my small contribution, whether to the church, the community, the world make?  Not much, it seems.  And then I remember the bees and their hive. The bees don't question their role.  They simply do what is necessary and rejoice in their contribution.

Joy for today:  rejoicing in what I can do.
