One Person Can Make a Difference

One person can make a difference in the world. Did you know that? I hope you did. Because it's possible to make a huge impact in this world if you just try. But many of us do not try. We are caught up in the blizzard of events and experiences that tug and pull at us. We call that life. Life does not seem very fulfilling when you are dashing to your next appointment (game, practice) and eating Taco Bell in the mini-van with the kids. This is not what God intended for us, but we bought into that culture. The busier we are the more important we can feel. We can tell people how busy we are and then people feel sorry for us. I know a few people who are busy because they need to be and that is the way it is. What's interesting about those folks, you rarely hear them gripe about how busy they are...
Our lives are busy because we make them busy. I know sometimes teachers or bosses make our lives busy. And that's ok. But to those who make their lives busy because of other things, stop complaining about being too busy or not having enough time to spend with family.
Each one of us has a choice. We can either remain too busy or we can make a difference.
There are countless examples of how one person can make a difference. Mario Chalmers is one. Zach Greinke another. And to get real spiritual on you- Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Billy Graham and Mother Teresa.
How about the Sunday school teacher that inspires a kid to go out into the world and do great things? How about the missionary that is an example to an impoverished kid who then in turn becomes a missionary? There are thousand if not millions of examples of one person making a huge difference.
It's tough to make a difference when we are too busy. There are people in your family, your church, your neighborhood and your community that need you to make a difference. Make a difference today. Go in peace and go with God.
