All of us can make a difference in the world. Every single one of us can nudge the world in the right direction. The secret is simple.
This is all that is necessary for us to see a brighter future. Start now. Wherever you are, with whatever resources available, you have the power to make the world a better and safer place for all of us. Justice begins when we act.
Isn’t this our call as people of faith? We are to live in the love which has first been shown to us. Reflecting that love to others is what life is all about.
If we demonstrate Christ’s love to all those we meet (and the key word here is demonstrate), there are some who won’t understand, but there are others who will not only soak up that love but also share it. Do something wonderful this week. Do something that demonstrates the love that we call Emmanuel.
Booker T. Washington was absolutely spot on with his assertion about the happiest people are the ones who do the most for others. The more we reach out and actually help those around us, the more joy we experience.
The deepest joy we can know is to give ourselves for others. Severing those whose need is the greatest brings a satisfaction and and joy found nowhere else.
It’s about giving. It’s about serving. It’s about loving. It’s what makes life worth living.
The night before He allowed Himself to be crucified Jesus gave His followers a commandment that we should love one another even as he has first loved us. If Christians would be obedient to this command there would be no question about our goodness.
