The Power of Small

Soulfood by Bo Sanchez

Oh, yes. We have a love affair with big. We want big people. Big titles. Big roles. Big paychecks. Big cars. Big events.

But today, you’ll realize that when we don’t value small things, small actions, small roles, small gifts—we lose the biggest blessings of our life.

I’d like to talk about small repeated actions.

The Bible says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom” (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

For 18 years of our married life, my wife focused on raising our two boys. Homeschooling them. Spending time with them. Guiding them. Early on, I asked her if she wanted to help me in the ministry. Did she want to preach? Did she want to write? Did she want to exorcise demons? (I’ll gladly turn over that job to her.) But every time I asked her, she always said, “Our kids are my ministry.”

I also asked her, “Do you want to work in a job or business?”

She said, “If you don’t need me to contribute financially to the family, I prefer to focus on the kids.”

And that’s what she did. For the past 18 years.

While I was on the stage preaching to thousands, she was at the backstage — in the dressing room — preaching to our two small boys.

While I was building worldwide ministries, she was changing diapers. She was reading bedtime stories. She was playing with them, singing with them, and praying with them. She focused on the small things because deep down, she believed they were the big things.

It wasn’t easy for her. Her closest girlfriends were all career women. Sometimes, she’d cry to me, feeling self-pity. “Bo, if I compare myself to other women, I feel so… useless.”

I’d just listen to her and hug her tight.

But a few years ago, something happened. My wife entered into a new season. Our youngest son Francis turned 10 years old. And she noticed that she then needed to give him more independence—for his own maturity. Before I knew it, she was becoming more active in both our business and our ministry. And I love seeing her do this.

I repeat what the Bible said: Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…

Let me ask you: What are the small things that you need to do today? If you do them with great love, small is big.

Stop looking at what other people are doing. Your God assignment is different from their God assignment.

Do whatever is in front of you.

Do the small things.

May your dreams come true,

P.S. You want to be a millionaire. You want to be truly rich. You want to bless other people. You want to be a channel of God’s blessings. And you will be.

But not overnight.

A lot of people think that once they’ve started investing in the stock market, they’d suddenly become rich. But that’s now how it works at all. YES, you can become a millionaire by investing in the stock market. But you also need SMALL, REPEATED ACTIONS for this. You need commitment. You need consistency.

I know I’ve sent out this invite MILLION times before, but I will send this out a MILLION times more. Because I want you to become a MILLIONAIRE. So you can live life to the fullest. So you can be a channel of God’s blessing.

Do you want to know how?
