A Cornerstone

The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is amazing in our eyes. —Matthew 21:42

Scripture is filled with stories of God using someone or something seem­ingly ordinary or insignificant to do great things: little David defeating Goliath, Moses’ mother weaving a bushel basket to save his life, a boy with five loaves and two fish that fed a crowd, an ardent Jew and persecutor of Christians named Paul who ended up spreading the Gospel across the Mediterranean.

FOR REFLECTION: What seemingly ordinary or insignificant thing in these past few months has God grown into something meaningful, amaz­ing, or vital in your life now?
