Many if not all great undertakings begin in small and often hidden ways.
Seeds need the darkness, isolation and cover of the earth in order to
germinate. Therefore, for something to begin small, hidden, anonymous,  is an
advantage. It means it can develop away from publicity. There are no pressures.
No burden of expectations. It can develop at its own pace.
There is no hurry. Hurry ruins so many things.
Hence the importance of beginnings, of taking care of things in their beginning, of the small in the accomplishment of the great.
How did Christ begin his great work, the salvation of the world?
He began simply, quietly. No fanfare, No firework. No public launching.
He began by calling a few people - two in fact. It was as simple as that.
He began with personal contact and that is how his work developed.
It was passed on from person to person by word of month.
We shouldn’t be surprised at this. Things which begin with a splash often peter out. Whereas those which begin quietly put down deep roots, grow steadily, and survive to produce fruits that last.
So, if there is something which we want to do, let us not hesitate and think too much. Let us make a start, however small.
Let us take one step. Let us plant one seed.
Let us trust that if our cause is good, God will support us,and it will grow and prosper.

(Flor McCarthy).
