Influence II

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. (Leo Buscaglia, late American author)

In spite of that, Buscaglia says, “But that does not lessen our possible impact. . . It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.” We don’t have to be famous—or even recognized—to make an impression and influence others for good. Be gracious and kind and look for those you can help quietly—maybe even secretly.

[Those who fear the LORD] share freely and give generously to those in need. They will have influence and honor. (Psalm 112:9)
