tugs for Jesus
what are tugs?
are small in comparison to the things around them, but they push and
pull those things around nevertheless.
Tugs are known for strength and endurance, not for beauty nor speed (but are frequently stunning to look at and very quick to make an impact).
You may not know a tug has even been there until noticing your direction has changed.
Tugs are ideas that linger.
David, of David and Goliath, was an original tug.
St. Therese of Lisieux was a tug.
The tortoise, of "The Tortoise and the Hare," was a tug.
And there are plenty of unrecognized and unsung tugs all around us.
The greatest tug of all was Jesus: he gave his life pushing and pulling the human race to his Father. And his mother gave, and still gives, her very existence to pushing and pulling the world to her Son.
Tugs have big hearts.
Tugs donít know what "quit" means.
Tugs think about the long haul rather than the short spurt.
Never compare your size or strength to anotherís.
Never think of yourself as too small or too weak.
Never underestimate the power of small gestures.
