Little Jobs for the Lord

A little boy once heard that even children could work for God’s kingdom, if they only loved the Lord Jesus with all their heart. 

The boy was crippled. He knew he wasn’t able to go from house to house to hand out tracts or gospel literature. He meditated on this and came up with an idea. “I’ve got it! I know what I can do.”

His parents had several leaflets containing Christian short stories. The little boy pulled these out of their cubbyhole, cut out the short stories, and tossed them out the window onto the street below. Then he cut out some paper slips and wrote Bible verses, such as: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son” (John 3:16) on them. He also tossed these notes onto the street. 

After a few days, a gentleman knocked on the door where the boy lived with his parents. He asked if someone there had written a note and then thrown it out the window. The boy admitted he had. 

Then the man said, “You have become, without knowing it, my life-saver. I have been so sad since the death of my wife. I was wandering aimlessly and without purpose through the streets. I wanted to take my life. My wandering led me under this window. I picked up this note and read, ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’ (John 3:16). This word encouraged me again. Then I also remembered the passage out of the Bible that I learned many years ago: ‘And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose’ (Romans 8:28).” 

How happy and thankful the boy was that his little job had brought such good fruit for the Savior.
