Today I would like to make a difference in someone’s life. At times life can prove to be very difficult and all the focus is on problems or the things in our lives. When Jesus was walking this earth, He focused on bettering everyone’s life more than His own. How often do we do this during our busy, hectic work week? Did you know that something as small as a “Hello”, can change someone’s day? I have a challenge for all of you out there reading this right now. Pack an extra sandwich and take it to work with you today, giving it to a person who could really use it. Pay for some groceries for that person in front of the checkout that doesn’t have the full amount. Help change a tire or push a broken down car out of the street so the driver can get to safety. Write a note of encouragement to your spouse or tell somebody at work that they are doing a great job. You never know who could use that inspiration today. I heard that someone who is depressed could literally be thinking about suicide and a simple ” Hi, how is your day going,” can snap them out of that unwanted thought. This challenge is for you to be the strength that someone else doesn’t have today. Galatians 6:2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way, you will fulfill the law of Christ.
