“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”
Peter Marshall, a twice-appointed Chaplain of the United States Senate, makes a poignant point doesn’t he? How often do we forsake small deeds in the name of planning and working towards a greater one? In that same vein, imagine the great deeds of your life — or even the life of a hero — how many of them began as little moments consumed by a “small deed?”
To accept Marshall’s challenge, we must pay attention to the small needs that we come across day-to-day. We may find that these deeds turn out to not be small at all.
