God regards not the greatness…

“… the littleness of the work lessened not one whit the value of the offering, for God regards not the greatness of the work, but the love which prompts it.”

From my morning readings in “The Practice of the Presence of God” by Brother Lawrence

What I like about this quote is the emphasis on our love.  Everything we do with our love for God is important, and  God values it.  We never need think “this is too trivial.”  Every little thing matters, and lots of little things can matter more than one big one.
