Big Business - Little People
by Berni Dymet

Matt. 9:10-12 And as he sat at dinner in the house, many tax collectors and sinners came and were sitting with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" But when he heard this, he said, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.

Here's an interesting statistic. The combined annual revenue of the top 50 companies in the world, is greater than the combined gross domestic products of the poorest 50 countries where half of the world's population lives. Wow!

It never ceases to amaze me how big companies can grow. Global brands that we all know - Coca Cola, McDonalds, Nike. But no matter how big they are, how many billions they turnover………each one is made up of individuals. Hundreds, thousands of ordinary, everyday people. Like you and me.

Whenever we look at something big - a company, a country, a natural disaster - it's really made up of a collection of little people, with little stories. Some happy. Some sad. Some - well, tragic. 

Maybe - that's why Jesus hung out with the little people. The fisherman. The tax collector. The leper. The beggar. The prostitute. One-on-one. Jesus.
