(Opens with woman sitting at table with Bible open and papers on table)
Hello God, it's me again. Each day I ask you for the same thing, please show me something BIG I can do for you today. Open my eyes and ears that I can know how to do big things for you.
(knock at the door interrupts her prayer)
Gee, wonder who that is?
(opens door) Hello?
(Standing at the door is a person, can be anyone.) "Hi, I'm collecting cans goods for charity."
(response is given with a very annoyed attitude) "I'm really busy now...I'm out of can food...maybe you could come back next week." (shuts door and returns to table)
"Boy these people think just cuz I stay home I have all the time in the world. Now where was I? Ahh...the mail. Man look at this junk mail. (holds up one piece after another) Feed the hungry children, send money, every envelope is asking for something. (picks up church bulletin) Oh the bulletin...always good for a few laughs. There was a day this had room for my shopping list on the back, now it's so full of advertisements. Look at this one "We NEED YOU." I'm sure you do...no way you're getting me down in that dungeon, I saw what happened to the last nursery workers. Oh, another supply collection, wonder what we're collecting for this time. Another mission trip, Gee wish I could go on vacation like that every year. (puts papers down) Seems like everywhere I turn someone wants my time, money or things. Don't they know I'm trying to do BIG things for God?
(later that day) God, here we are at the end of another day. And again you didn't answer my request. I want to do big important things for you, yet you're silent...I just don't get it."
(Skit ends and someone, can be the same person, then talks to the crowd)
See this lady didn't get it did she? All day God showed her big things she could do for him. See to God BIG is not the size or seemed importance, but genuine from the heart. To God Big Is Genuine!

This was good, but you don't need the explanation at the end. People will get it. If this were to be used in a church setting, the pastor could use this skit before his/her sermon and refer to it throughout the message.
