A Collect to Not Despite the Small Things

Almighty Father, who provides food for all living things, keep us from despising things that are seemingly small and insignificant, for we know that you can use even the little things to accomplish many wonders, through Jesus Christ our Lord, whose one life through you and the Holy Spirit have come to affect the whole earth. Amen. ‘He also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”‘ – Mark 4:30-32
