Is there significance to Jesus using the word "little" in Luke 12:32?

Most translations put this as "little flock". Why did Jesus not just say "my flock"? Was Jesus trying to get a point across by using "little"?

Luke 12:32

NRSV - 32 Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
