Saul answered, “But am I not a Benjamite, from the smallest tribe of Israel, and is not my clan the least of all the clans of the tribe of Benjamin? Why then do you say such things to me.” – 1 Sam 9:21
Saul is being called to be the King of Israel. He has been chosen personally by God to do His work for the people. It is always amazing how God does things in this world. What we think would happen or should happen is rarely how God does what He does. His logic flies in the face of worldly wisdom. He has chosen a man least of the tribes of Benjamin, least of the tribes of Israel.
Do you ever feel like you are part of the least of these? Feel as if God could never use you to do great things? I am hear to tell you that God loves to use the meek to take down the arrogant and prideful. He loves to use the smallest to take on the biggest. Just look at David vs. Goliath or Israel, which defeated Egypt. God says that He chose Egypt because they were the least among the nations, not because of their might.
What we fail to realize is that all that we do is for the Lord and so when He calls us to the impossible, we find that it is not we who are doing this thing, but it is God. That is what are great deeds are supposed to point to, God. That is why He chooses the seemingly week and insignificant, it is because to Him you are significant and He can work all kinds of impossibilities through those who are willing.
Today, I just want to sit back and thank God for working with the least of these like myself to do His works in life. We may not change the world, but we can change the world for someone today. Someone in our community today needs God, they need the Gospel message. There is no greater task for us to accomplish than to provide the Gospel to the people. Now God works through us, there is no such thing as insignificant. God can work through you too, if you are willing and because He loves you.
