You can’t change or control the world around you. You can change and control the world within you. (Warren Wiersbe, late American author)

After reading the newspaper or watching the evening TV news, do you ever begin to wish you really could “change the world?” Even the most political powerful world leaders can’t make the changes they’d like, though they often try . . . sometimes by wicked methods. It’s best for all of us to acknowledge Wiersbe’s words and do our best to bring change,beginning with ourselves.

Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self-control than to conquer a city (Proverbs 16:32).
