Changing the World

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." - Anne Frank

I want to be a world changer. 

Now that's a big dream. A dream that I once thought was unattainable, ridiculous, and, frankly, naive. I thought the whole "change the world" bit sounded like a beauty pageant Q&A line and would never be taken seriously. But I've come to realize that's so far from the truth. I can change the world, and so can you.

Changing the world happens one loving person at a time.
Changing the world doesn't take a superstar platform. It doesn't take a spouse. It doesn't take living in a city or having a million Facebook friends. It takes a single person deciding to act in love and compassion, deciding to show kindness instead of impatience. When many people (even in the Church) are proclaiming the world's going to hell in a hand basket, world changers are the ones giving hope for tomorrow, believing that Jesus came to restore and are actively being part of that restoration process.

Simply showing one individual generosity can change his/her world, and that's changing the world.

Let's change the world, friends.

What does being a "world changer" mean to you?
