The Small and the Great


A couple dozen times in Scripture one will find the expression, “the small and the great.” “The small and the great” alike have responsibility of service in God’s kingdom (1 Chron. 25:8; 26:13). “The small and the great” alike need to hear the words of God’s covenant (2 Kgs. 23:2). “The small and the great” alike will be punished for their rebellious wrongdoing (Gen. 19:11; 1 Sam. 5:9; Jer. 16:6). “The small and the great” alike deserve to be treated and given consideration (Deut. 1:17). “The small and the great” alike are responsible to praise God (Rev. 19:5). “The small and the great” alike will be judged by the same standard on the last day (Rev. 20:12). Among those who fear and serve the Lord, “the small and the great” alike will be rewarded (Psa. 115:13; Rev. 11:18).

It does not matter, in God’s sight, if you are “small” or if you are “great” (in your sight or in man’s sight). What matters is how you handle the responsibilities and opportunities afforded you by God! When you trust and obey God, you are “great” in His sight (1 Sam. 15:22)!
