I have stood many people in this foyer and asked....do you see anything wrong? Most people stare, analyze, look at me like it's a trick and say no....
I have lived in this house for ten years. I am not sure how many years I lived here before I noticed the panel to the right is white and the one to the left is yellow like the wall. I have spent the last ten years using it as a conversation piece when people come over. But, I never cared enough to do anything about it...even though it is wrong in every decorators book!
Today, I happened to be at the paint store and thought about it...I bought a can of paint and thought "one day, I will fix this." However, within ten minutes of the can entering the house, this happened....
My problem solver took the task on! The paint is drying and the sides match for the first time in ten years! We both laughed. She said she wondered how long it would take daddy to notice --- maybe another ten years!
This made me wonder how many other "small" issues we have in our lives that are not significant enough for us to stop and give our attention to even though in the divine decorator of our lives book...the Bible...it is clearly wrong or in need of repair. How many "small" seemingly insignificant issues do others have that we could minister to yet we ignore even though it would take us less than ten minutes to fix?
I was convicted by this eleven year old who took on the task just because....may I look for the small ways to serve others even if it never gets noticed!
