Every Small Deed Counts

Every little thing a person does counts. A small deed can even decide his eternal fate, as the following parable demonstrates.

A man once set out on a trip to a distant city. But the money he had was enough to buy a ticket only to the last stop before the city. For just a few pennies more, he could have reached his destination. But for lack of those pennies he was cast off the train at the stop before the city. There he stood, on the road penniless and miserable.

The same is true of our deeds. Sometimes because of a small deed that a person neglected, all his good deeds cannot tilt the scales against his bad deeds, and he is left in his misery for all eternity ~ Sparks Musser
