Making a Difference

Isn't that what we all want to do? Make a difference. In our families, our jobs, our churches, our lives. I know I do! What does it take to make a difference? Nothing big like we tend to think.

We can make a difference in the lives of our families by spending time with our kids and our spouse, by showing concern and interest in what they have to say, by loving them openly and with everything we have.

We can make a difference in our jobs by working hard, doing our best, treating our co-workers and boss with respect, showing honesty and integrity in every area of our life at work, living the Golden Rule with everyone we meet.

We can make a difference in our church by being there whenever the doors are open, faithfully giving, volunteering to help in whatever way we can, doing our best to get along with others, encouraging our brothers and sisters in Christ, supporting our pastor, living a good Christian example in front of others.

We can make a difference in every area of our life by being the best we can be in all the little things we do.

Micah 6:8 exhorts us to, "Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly with [our] God." Those aren't big things, but doing them can make a HUGE difference in our lives and in the lives of those around us. What an example of the perfect Christian walk, don't you think?
