John Wesley would be proud to call President Jimmy Carter a friend and a true disciple of Christ. The President’s lifestyle matches his words. His caring for others and his compassion can be seen daily in his actions.
President Carter is a lifelong member of the Baptist Church The quote,however, is from John Wesley, the founder of the United Methodist Church.
The source of the quote is not as important as its message. Faithfulness demands a lifestyle of caring and compassion that helps create a world of justice where love trumps hatred and mercy is more important than money.
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.
Most of us will never be in a position to give $11 million to help those in need. But everyone of us can provide hope to someone. We can all be heroes of hope.There are thousands, even millions, of ways to demonstrate the love of God to those around us. A word of encouragement can change a person’s life forever.
Helping our neighbors begins with caring enough to act. Kindness is in short supply these days. Smile more, and look for opportunities to put love into action. Providing hope for even one person is helping nudge the world in the right direction.
Become a hero of hope. The world needs more heroes.
Today is my 70th birthday. I realize that at my age I neither have the time nor the inclination to remain calm while I look about me and see our beautiful world being systematically destroyed and my nation going to hell in a hack. It’s time to join together with like-minded people and change the world.
This has always been true. Each of us has the glorious opportunity to create the world we want. We can make a difference in the lives of thousands, even millions who live in crushing poverty and never escape the shadow of hunger,
Working together we can change the world forever. We can rewrite history. We can become a part of a global movement that truly ends hunger in our lifetime. This is my goal. And it’s always been the vision that drives Stop Hunger Now. Join with me and let’s create a better and more just world for all.
