I was impressed to read from Diane Neal Matthews that McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Des Plaines, IL, in April 1955. The first day, the operators made $366.12. Today, they make a whole lot more than that.
Every day, McDonalds serves more than 47 million people. McDonald’s has expanded to franchise restaurants in 119 countries.
When I read this, I could not help but think of Jesus’ words:
31He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches" (Mt. 13:31-32.)
God creates. God recreates. Who knows what God is in today? It could be something starting small, but later it will grow to make a huge impact.
Who knows? Perhaps you are a part of that ministry.
