Bigger is better, says the world. But God often takes groups from large to little. Why is that?
This is what Rachael Adams and I are discussing on this episode of the Live Like It’s True podcast. We’re exploring the interesting story of God thinning out Gideon’s army by about 99%, then sending him to war.
Let’s consider how this story runs corrects the “bigger is better” false narrative, and what God wants us to know, instead.

A Little Goes a Long Way

In her book, A Little Goes a Long Way: 52 Days to a Significant Life, Rachael offers biblical truths about God’s ability to unlock eternal influence when we consistently pursue and obey Him. Her desire is that other women find fulfillment, satisfaction, and purpose—not based on their circumstances but based on God’s promises. Some of the reflective truths she offers include the following:

  • a little work
  • a little conversation
  • a little effort
  • a little gratitude
  • a little forgiveness
