[W]e are God’s fellow workers.
—1 Corinthians 3:9
With all the problems of the planet on display on a computer in your pocket, it seems unlikely that you—one individual—can do much that makes a difference.
But the world is comprised of continents, which are comprised of countries, which are comprised of states, which are comprised of cities, which are comprised of neighborhoods, which are comprised of people. Ultimately, it’s people—individuals—that make a difference.
Don’t for a moment label yourself insignificant. A single pebble creates a ripple on the pond that spreads out far from the original splash. Just so, every good thing you do and kind thing you say influences a person, who influences your neighborhood, which influences your city . . . which somewhere down the line, influences the world.
God uses ordinary people who do
ordinary things extraordinarily well.
