Wisdom from Pascal

Here is a quote from Blaise Pascal which I have on my filing cabinet. I keep it there because I think it captures well the combinations of aspiration and humility. In our work as pastors we must aspire and long for advance in the kingdom, and we must realize that such advancement comes in the fulfilling of ‘small’ duties.

“Lord, help me do great things as though they were little, since I do them with your powers, and help me to do little things as though they were great, because I do them in Your name.”

- Blaise Pascal
