STOP AND THINK – If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me. (Attributed to Robert Schuller, retired American televangelist)

Others put it this way: “Be the change you seek” and “Do not wait for leaders. Do it alone, person to person.” (Mother Teresa). This is the opposite of the often-heard, “Let George do it.” In a society that seems to be becoming more and more dependent on others, it would be better to follow Nike’s epigram, “Just do it.”

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. (James 4:17)
