Power of the little things

J.C. Ryle (1816–1900), the evangelical Anglican bishop, published a series of children’s sermons called Stories for Boys and Girls in which he writes: “Oh, my dear children, who can tell the power of the littles? The power of littles is very wonderful! No one knows what can be done by a little, and a little, and a little.” Ryle continues: “Oh, the importance of little habits! Habits of reading, habits of prayer, habits at meals, little habits through the day—all are little things. But they make up the character, and are of utmost importance.”
