How the Ordinary Can Be Used for the Extraordinary

God often uses ordinary people to get the extraordinary done. Time and time again we underestimate the ordinary. We disregard the importance of the ordinary. We don’t see the potential or the blessing it can bring. God sees what we can be, not what we are.
