While listening to the radio recently, I heard an older song by the band Alabama called "Give Me One More Shot." The song mentions how easy it is to sit and talk about the problems we see and how we need to be living each day. We can sit and listen to God's Word and we can talk about the issues around us, but we need to be ready to use each day to live and make a difference. We need to be ready for action!
God blesses us. Each day that we are alive gives an opportunity for us to make a difference in the world around us. Making a difference doesn't have to revolve around money or organizing a large group or project. Each and every one of us are capable of showing love and kindness. A simple smile can brighten someone's day and make a difference. We need to prepare ourselves by reading and listening to God's Word and by accepting His forgiveness and love. After we are prepared, we need to be ready for action - ready to act out in His love and kindness to improve the lives of those around us!
Know God. Know His Word and His will. Be ready to act in His love!
Thank You for Your love and blessings in my life. Help me to act out in Your love and kindness so others can know You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
