QUOTABLES: E.A. Skogsbergh on Small Beginnings

“When the wanderer stands by the little hidden spring in the woods and observes how the newborn brook searches its way between moss and heather, it is difficult to understand that this is the beginning of a mighty river that a few hundred miles farther on plunges down into deep gorges and finally flings itself into the arms of the sea. God’s work usually begins in this small way. The acorn hidden in the earth becomes the giant of the forest; daybreak grows into noonday brilliance; yes, even the great statesman begins his career in a cradle. The world would never have expected that a few uneducated Galileans would exert such influence in history that their names would be known from cottage to palace. But such is the Lord’s way.” -E.A. Skogsbergh
