Doing a good work creates opportunities to do more good works. When one does good, doors open and the good is multiplied. Whoever thinks he lacks opportunity, therefore, needs to act and more opportunities will appear than one can take advantage of.
Jesus returned to the city of Cana in Galilee, where he had changed water into wine. A government official was in Cana. His son was sick in Capernaum.
John 4:46 GW
The first miracle recorded in the gospel of John is the wedding wine in Cana. When Jesus returned there, the royal official must have heard of that first miracle and, because of that, searched out the Lord to ask him to help his sick son.
The first miracle of Christ did not save anyone, did not cure anyone, did not raise anyone from the dead. It merely spared the person in charge of the party embarrassment. This time, Jesus cures the son of an important official from a distance.
Do today the small good so that tomorrow you may perform a greater work.
Can you think of another setting or moment where this principal applies?
