Don’t Ignore the Little Things!

Little strokes fell great oaks. — Benjamin Franklin

Don’t Ignore the Little Things!

There’s a danger in covertness, with no reference to that seen in humility.

But the type wrecking ‘manifold danger’ while running its course.

That danger lies in ignoring things or glossing them over.

There aren’t spectators to say out loud: “What the hell is this”?

There aren’t those who take it further and nip things in the bud.

Things we brush over and those that get swept under, make the list.

We see these in our daily lives.

We see them in friendships, relationships, families, politics, and global affairs.

“Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.”

Don’t ignore the little things.

These are huge things waiting to happen.

And usually, at that point, not only is it late, but the price is steep!
