Focus on changing yourself, not on changing the world. In the end you’ll do both. (Kary Oberbrunner, author and motivational coach)

We don’t have to look far to see things that need to be changed. Poverty, crime, political unrest, world-wide turmoil—the list is endless. And a lot of us want to do something to bring about significant change. But Oberbrunner suggests a starting point: each of us as individuals. Progress begins with you and me. Is there something you should change today?

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching (Titus 2:7). If you teach others, why don’t you teach yourself? (Romans 2:21)
