The seed that is sewn can be a smile, a helping hand, a phone call/text, making a grocery list and sticking to it, washing your hands, taking a walk, listening….and so on. There are so many mustard seeds to sew in our daily lives that make a difference in the grand scheme of things.
These things may seem trivial as we do them because often we are living unconsciously.
For example, if you go on not washing your hands after performing a task that is called for it, more likely you will be prone to germs which can get you sick, which in turn keep you from your daily other duties. Washing your hands may seem like a small action, but the smallest “acts” are usually at the core of the ultimate outcomes and the biggest resolutions. All of the small Elements of integration play a significant role in the continuation of things that may appear insignificant at first glance. Teaching a child to wash his or her hands when needed at an early age, is a substantial life skill. That child has formed a habit of hygienic practice at an early age. With that small habit, that child is learning not only about hygiene but most importantly health.
Health is a significant life skill to have because without health there is very little that you can do. The life skills to take better care of your health are indeed small but are great acts. This skill is one that takes time and practice to help form the needed habits.
