Have you ever had a great idea, and then found your excitement taken over by doubts, to the point you just gave up? That can happen in our spiritual life as well. As Jesus gathered his disciples together, he knew that they too might become discouraged to the point of giving up. So he advised them to start small, keep things simple, and to not allow themselves to become overwhelmed. 

In our own efforts to share the good news of God's love, it is easy to think we need more than we have, and that we need to provide it all. But if we take seriously God's love for us and God's purpose for us, and we are truly willing to be God's disciples, God will provide the means to make it happen. And even doing "little things" can have a surprisingly powerful impact.
