Finding God's Greatness in the Mundane

I'm rereading my way through 2 Kings, and this verse stood out to me in a new way today, 

"If the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, 'Wash and be cleansed'!" 

And I thought: I am so like Namaan--I jump to do great things, but will frequently dismiss the small acts of obedience as less than great. 


If God has placed it before me to do, isn't it just as great?! 

And sometimes that actually does involve washing and cleansing--not leprous skin, but my house and my kids. When I do that joyfully for the Lord, then those things ARE GREAT things! 

And sometimes when "all I can do is pray" = also great! God is good to put great things before us!
