Giving for the One
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted my life to count for something lasting. I’ve yearned for my actions to make a difference in the world, somehow, for somebody.
No, I’m not Oprah Winfrey, with pocketbooks full of big bucks.
No, I’m not Billy Graham, with opportunities for great influence in many of the world’s largest arenas.
And no, I’m not Meryl Streep, with brightly-lit stages from which to speak and affect the masses.
I’m just an ordinary person, trying to live my simple little life in full obedience to Jesus Christ. I live in relative obscurity, doing the little things I am inspired to do each day as I study the Scriptures and those things Jesus told us to do.
With the small resources I have, I can only do so much, but I can do something.
This morning the idea came to my mind, Think about the one.
Jesus always stopped along his travels to minister to individuals, and maybe I can think in those terms too.
