Too many times, we set out with dreams of changing the world, only to see our dreams wither under the enormity of the task. If you want to change the world, it first must begin with us. Small daily decisions, will change us, and impact the world around us. It would be cool to invent something that would be beneficial to the entire world. But, I’m probably not going to do that, (and chances are, you won’t either.) But, if I focus on me, and learn to treat people the way Jesus did. If I focus on my heart, and filling it with God’s Word, instead of what the world is selling. If I focus on forgiving, instead of teaching others a lesson. If I make my relationship with Jesus more important to me, than the way others see me, I will find that not only will I change, but I will have an impact on the world around me. I may not be able to change the world, but then again, that’s not my job. I am called to be a light shining in the darkness, I am called to be a follower of Christ, I am called to be His hands and feet, His ambassador. I’m not called to live a perfect life, just a purposeful life.
We will never change the world around us, until we first change ourselves to look less like the world.
