Sometimes we all need a reminder that sometimes the little things matter most. It takes a small hinge to open a big door!
A huge cathedral door opens and closes on a few small hinges. Doors are big and heavy and can be made with wood, metal or glass. It’s the small hinges that power the movement of the heavy doors. Without the hinges, some of these monstrous doors would be almost impossible to move.
Without the smaller practices of teaching your kids patience, grace, and honesty, the bigger things will fall apart and an enjoyable family trip can turn into a nightmare! Big things are manifested through small actions.
The hinges in your life can be in the form of relationships or activities. Relationships that grow you or activities that are steps needed to achieve a goal.
Maybe you have a door in your life in which the hinges need to be oiled or replaced. Maybe it isn’t quite working the way it used to or maybe you had the wrong hinges in place and it never did work and you are just beginning to realize that.
Do you have a door in your life that needs a little bit of oiling or attention? Or do you have a door that you need to replace the hinges all together?
