“Tiny but Mighty”

Romans 16:11b-12a

Greet those in the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord. Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those women who work hard in the Lord.

Thoughts for Today:

Years ago, and within a few months of meeting Sherry (who would later become my wife), I moved into a new house. A lot of work was involved. However, despite the newness of our relationship, Sherry volunteered to help. We worked well together. I knew she was special because not only did she not mind a little hard work, but was also observably joyful in doing so. I remember one large cabinet I needed to move into another room. I was ready to call a friend over to help. Instead Sherry said, "I can do it, I may be tiny, but I'm mighty!" No truer words were ever spoken. Sherry has always been such a great blessing and help to me in every season and area of my life.

In our passage today, Paul introduces us to Tryphena and Tryphosa. They are sisters whose names mean "Dainty" and "Delicate". However, regardless of their diminutive physical nature they didn't mind rolling up their sleeves to help practically. And they worked hard for the Lord. Dainty and Delicate, sounds a lot like my wife's moniker of "tiny but mighty". When it comes to working for the Lord, size doesn't matter.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you have a habit of stepping aside when there is work to be done? Do you perceive some limitation in your physical ability compared to others? Trust in the Lord. Offer to help. Pitch in. God calls us to be participants not spectators.
