We have different opportunities in life. We can choose to do good or we can choose to ignore those opportunities. As baseball player and humanitarian Roberto Clemente said, "Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, then you are wasting your time on earth." Clemente's life and early death reminds us that we should engage in doing good and making a difference now and into the future!
God is the source of goodness and blessings. When we follow God, we are called to spread His love and share His blessings. We are given the power to make a difference and God expects us to do so. We cannot turn a blind eye toward others, the good they deserve, or the needs with which we can help. God places us in certain situations, particular places at certain times, so that we can be His hands and feet on earth. To avoid wasting our time here on earth, we need to follow God's calling and make a difference for His Kingdom!
Don't waste your time on earth, follow God's calling and make a difference by acting in His power!
Thank You for the blessings You provide in life and for Your calling! Help me to make a difference for Your Kingdom by acting in the power You give me. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
