Just A Little Yeast


Mat 13:33 (KJV) Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

The depth of decadence in our society is both intimidating and alarming. Imagine the recent twist to our national security.

Truth to tell, things got to this state because ‘ordinary’ men have always underrated the power of their ‘little’ contributions – hence they stop trying altogether!


For evil sure triumph where good men do nothing!
-Edmund Burke

In any case, what God requires of our nation is not too much:


A few good men
to stress the truth

A few praying men
to stand in the gap…

A few upright men
to uphold the arm of justice

A few hopeful people
to see a brighter tomorrow…


Little noble acts

Little brave tendencies

Little words of faith

Little deeds of kindness

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

– Romans 12:21(KJV)

Small men
resisting inequality

Ordinary men
standing against corruption

Common men
rising against oppression

Everyday people
insisting on righteousness

A few strong voices
To speak for the poor

A few strong structures
To support the human family


May the little good deeds of the few good men and women amidst us total to affect the whole society by Your power …

Please grant that our collective ‘few‘ acts of righteousness adds up to exalt this nation and attract Your Supreme intervention!
