What You Can

She did what she could, the Scripture tells us. Always liked the passage and I have always liked the thought. People do grand things when “she” does what she can. Tending to the children, tending to the home, tending to a husband who needs support, tending to the neighbors who need an ear. Having a bright smile, a working spirit, and a godly disposition – the Lord said she did what she could.

The pronoun is a “she,” but it could be a “he.” We may not do much in comparison with others, but the Lord notes when we do what we can.
