What the World Needs

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive because the world needs people who have come alive. (Howard Thurman, 20th-century author)

“What the World Needs Now Is Love” was a popular song a few years ago, and it’s sentiment is still true, no doubt. But Thurman’s suggestion is a great challenge. If, indeed, each of us would focus on what excites us most and find ways to use that enthusiasm to benefit others in our community, there’s no telling what good we could accomplish.

Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people (Ephesians 6:7).
