what will you do right now to improve the world?

Anne Frank

I found the Anne Frank quote I posted earlier on Twitter this morning.  In case you missed it:

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

The problem is…I first read it and thought, “Yes!” then read it a few more times through the day, then thought about it some more…and here it is, the close of the day.

What did I do today to act on her wisdom and encouragement?  Nothing.

Did I do anything today to start to improve the world?  Sadly, no.

So today, I failed miserably.  But today is not over and tomorrow is another day.  Continuous opportunities to grab the moments with which we have been blessed and use them to start something.

Start something small.  Start something big.

It really doesn’t matter so long as you start something.

Start changing the world!

It is a terrible blight on evangelical Christianity that our churches have sent more soldiers to the Middle East than missionaries. If Christians are so concerned about the threat of Islamofascism, then what better way to confront it than with the Gospel of Christ?
