The eternal harmony

Sir Michael Costa, the celebrated conductor, during a rehearsal, stopped the music and said, ‘Where is the piccolo?’ It turned out that the piccolo player, thinking that his contribution would not be missed amid so much sound from dozens of larger instruments, stopped playing. But the sound of that one small instrument was necessary to the overall effect, and the great conductor missed it when it dropped out.
To the conductor there are no insignificant instruments in an orchestra. Just as to God there are no insignificant players in the great performance of life. You may think your contribution to life is insignificant and noone would be any the wiser if you stopped making it. But it’s not. From our perspective, our contribution may be small, but from God’s, it is crucial – part of the eternal harmony.
