Making a Difference II

Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. (Margaret Mead, late American anthropologist)

“What can we do? We’re such a small group and without any influence.” That’s often the thought when we see the great needs around us. But just think of the world-changing work of a few disciples who followed Jesus and “changed the world.” Or, what about William Wilberforce and the Clapham group who were largely responsible for the end of the slave trade in England?

Do not despise these small beginnings. . . “All this may seem impossible to you now, a small remnant of God’s people. But is it impossible for me?” says Lord of Heaven’s Armies. (Zechariah 4:10; 8:6)
