Do you ever lay in bed at night and think, “God I want to be a world change maker but I don’t know how.” It’s something I say often, and then when I think of all the darkness and injustice that happens on our globe and I’m simply overwhelmed by the scale of it. Poverty, hunger, trafficking, homelessness, wars, murder, slavery. I struggle to comprehend and I don’t know what me, one little person can do.
I went to bed last night with the same thought and the Lord reminded me of the Good Samaritan story. Many walked past the broken beaten man on the side of the road before the Samaritan came and stopped, helped and wanted nothing in return. I often wonder if I have been that person…
Have I walked by without seeing if a friend needs help? Have I been a bystander thinking someone else would better suit a situation? Have I thought for so long that I, a mere homemaker was not good enough to do anything?
As I pondered this the Lord spoke softly. “It only takes the smallest step to a greater change.” Instantly I knew what he meant.
We don’t need to be big and grand about our actions. It’s the tiniest act of giving that helps make a big impact. We can start right from home and listen to the promptings of God. It could be reaching out to someone who He has placed in your heart. It could be donating even just the littlest amount to a charity your mind always goes back too, volunteering, sharing a post that the world needs to see.
We are so blessed and rewarded with all that God has done for us, even in trials. So are you like me and feel that the problems of the world are too big for one person to be a change maker?
My question to you is, what is one small act you can accomplish to help another, right where you are at?
1 John 3:16-18
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
