Activist Faith

Every wonder if what you do makes a difference?

I was having one of those moments this week. Then I browsed through some of my messages from the past few days. There I saw:

-An 8th grader who contacted me for information on how to end modern slavery.

-A friend whose church raised money to provide Bibles for a girl’s Bible study at a detention center.

-Another friend sharing stories of his recent mission trip to the Dominican Republic.

-A former student headed to another country to share his faith through music.

-A picture from my 2-year old daughter blowing on a dandelion puff in our yard.

-A copy of a book I had worked on that was featured at a conference in Cincinnati.

-An old friend from college about to celebrate his 13th wedding anniversary.

-A former classmate preparing to move to India to change lives through education.

Everything counts. It may not makes sense at the moment, but your actions today will change the world for better or worse.

Choose to change the world where you are.

You won’t regret it.
