When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

So live each day as though you were walking with Jesus. Our future will be better for it and you WILL make a difference.

  • We have the power to change the nation, if people see who we really are by letting our light shine thru in this sinful world.
    It really hungers for the love Christ has given us to share with this lose and dying world

    that’s right! To change the world, you must change yourself first and to change yourself, you must change your mind. Repent of your sins and follow God. Read the Bible everyday, Jesus said “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. I recommend reading Rick Warren’s books and also Joyce Meyer’s Battlefield of the Mind. God bless the one who reads this 🙂

  • I was inspired with these thoughts. Yes its true its very hard to make change. But change would be possible if we start within ourselves. It’s just like a light that can simply radiate it to others if we’ll just show it too.
