Read Ezekiel 17:22-24

22 This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“I will take the top of a tall cedar
    and break off a tender sprout;
I will plant it on a high mountain,
23     on Israel's highest mountain.
It will grow branches and bear seed
    and become a magnificent cedar.
Birds of every kind will live there
    and find shelter in its shade.
24 All the trees in the land will know
    that I am the Lord.
I cut down the tall trees
    and make small trees grow tall.
I wither up the green trees
    and make the dry trees become green.

I, the Lord, have spoken. I will do what I have said I would do.”

Think

Ezekiel tells a parable about the future.  God will take the tiniest, weakest looking branch from the upper reaches of a tall tree.  That tiny, weak branch will one day tower as a great cedar.

Pray

Lord thank you that you make small things great.  And you have the power to make great things small.
