It’s ridiculous to want to change the world without acknowledging that we need to change ourselves. (Eugene Cho, pastor and author)
Many years ago, a Russian author expressed the same idea: “Everybody thinks of changing humanity, and nobody thinks of changing himself” (Leo Tolstoy). As you watch or read the news today, don’t you often think of ways you would change things if you only had the position and authority to do so? Start with yourself and then your influence may affect much larger change.
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity (1 Timothy 4:12).
