Kittie L Suffield was born in 1884 and lived until 1972. She was married to a Canadian man, Fred Suffield. Together, the Suffield’s were travelling evangelists and were known to have worked with a young George Beverly Shea. It is hard to find much more information about the life of Kittie Suffield aside from the fact that she wrote these lyrics: “Does the place you’re called to labor seem too small and little known? It is great if God is in it, and He’ll not forget His own. Little is much when God is in it! Labor not for wealth or fame. There’s a crown—and you can win it, if you go in Jesus’ Name.” ("Little is Much When God Is In It" by Kittie L Suffield 1924)
The mustard seed and yeast are both small and seemingly insignificant elements of the world we live in. And yet both are able to do great things when they function in the way God intended for them. They reflect how God’s Kingdom is made up of people who may feel like the place they are called to serve God is small and seemingly insignificant. But like Kittie reminds us, little is much when God is in it. How is the kingdom of God making a difference in the place you are called to live?
