So I’m pretty sure I’ve blogged about this before, but I’m going to blog about it again because it is on my mind. . .
There this old Newsboys song, That’s How You Change the World.
The Lyrics say,
“It’s about the Prayer in an empty room, Little things we do when no body’s around.”
The little things we do. I don’t think that could be more true. I mean sure, you might do a 100 little seeming insignificant things everyday, and they might not seem important, but that’s how you change the world.
In church we have been doing a study on Paul, and recently my pastor has been talking about Barnabas.
So I don’t know what you know about Barnabas, but he wasn’t a very well known guy. Like he encouraged those around him, and he didn’t like like to get recognition. Maybe Barnabas didn’t change the world, but he definitely made a difference for the people around him.
It’s like that story I know I’ve shared before on this blog, but it relates, so I’m going to share it again.
There was a man walking on the beach throwing starfish back into the sea. One day, another man stopped him and asked, “Why are you throwing the starfish back in the sea? There are hundreds of starfish, you can’t possibly get them all.”
The man looked up at him and smiled then said. “Well I made a difference for that one.”
So maybe you do a hundred little things, and feel like you can’t change the world, but you can make a difference.
