From Major to Minor

Share a major unfinished duty you'd like to carry to completion this year. (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 295).

It may well be for me that the time for "major duties" has passed-- those grandiose, high profile acts for God and country. It is often remarked that one's later years in some ways reflect one's childhood years; and this may be one of those ways. While we are keenly interested in a child's behavior – for example, whether they reflect compassion or its reverse, say cruelty to animals--we nevertheless have very measured, even restricted, expectations. It is in this sense that I seek the completion of no major duties, just the ongoing fulfillment of many smaller ones. And beyond that, I would pray that the Lord open my eyes to all those myriad daily duties that I should do, but sometimes neglect to do or fail to even see.  I thus open the definition of "major duty" to include such things as writing weekly letters to my son.
