LITTLENESS

littleness

LITTLENESS. That’s how Jesus of Nazareth entered this world. What’s in the Word of littleness that ALL humankind could learn from? What kind of Word to the world comes from little mouths that haven’t uttered words? What kind of Word is spoken by littleness born to poverty and not to a shopping centre?

Isn’t the important littleness of Jesus of Nazareth the same kind of littleness we’re ALL born to? Isn’t his the very same Word that shapes us? Jesus lived littleness and loved littleness. What’s in the Word of littleness – in him or in us – that ALL humankind could learn from? How does such littleness act as prism for such very great light?

Steadfast love and faithfulness
will meet;
righteousness and peace will
embrace one another.

Psalm 85.10 (again)
