One difference between being small and being large — in terms of soul-perspectives on oneself, not in terms of physical size — is that the small one can feel gratitude where the large one feels entitlement.

The small one hopes, knowing that she deserves nothing.

And yet she hopes confidently: not because she is worthy, but because He-on-whom-her-hope-is-set has promised, and He cannot lie.
