"The Smallest Good Act"

"Good and evil both increase at compound rates. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible."
--C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

This is so true, and I thought of it again this morning when learning terrible news of a friend's marriage, which is in shreds. The little things become the larger ones....for both good and evil.

The importance of the small daily acts- Mother Theresa used to say that we are to do little things with great love.
