None of us lives to himself alone.
A pebble thrown in a pond triggers ever-widening ripples.
Every choice you make, every action you take, every word you speak, is your pebble in the pond …
kindness or cruelty
compassion or coldness
gentleness or hostility
patience or intolerance
thoughtfulness or indifference
You don’t choose the pebbles others lob, but you alone choose the ones tossed in your end of the pond.
That first little splash is the beginning of something much, much bigger. Each life you touch—for good or bad—will touch another life, and that in turn another, and another, and another until your touch is felt both close to home and in distant times and places.
Let each word and action start
a ripple of faith, hope, and love.
