The Significance of the “Unimportant”

Les Miserables 2

“It is what the unimportant do that really counts and determines the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers are more effective than hurricanes, but they get no publicity. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.”

—-Dr. Joseph R. Sizoo, Unsung Heroes, quoted in Insurgence, (Frank Viola)

Dr. Sizoo was a Presbyterian Pastor in New York

There are no little people. There are no unimportant people. There are no insignificant people. Every person is made in the image and likeness of God. Treat them with dignity. Love them for Christ’s sake.

Simply be faithful to love people. Dwell in the land; be faithful; trust God; proclaim Jesus and expect God to do extraordinary things.

It’s what He does..
