The highlight of a grand wedding was to be the speech by the bride’s best friend immediately after the vows. The bride’s friend had wanted the minister to “read first John 4:18” (“There’s no fear in love”). But nervous, she said, “read first, John 4:18.” The minister did, aloud: “You’ve had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband.” A little mistake! A little comma or change in intonation. It ruined a grand wedding. It’s “the little foxes that spoil the vines” (Song of Songs 2:15). Don’t neglect little things: A little kindness, a little apology, thank you, courtesy, cleanliness, faith, etc. Big doors are opened by little hinges. Little isn’t little.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
