The worlds' problems are endless - terrorism, poverty, pandemics, domestic violence, racism and hunger. And no one seems to be able to fix them. Not governments, foundations, education, businesses or religion. Yet God is audacious enough to say to you, "You can make a difference." And, believe it or not, you can.
You can speak a word of love in the face of hate, sanity in the midst of insanity and hope in times of absolute despair. You can mentor a child, spend time with a home-bound senior or help fight childhood hunger. You can pray with someone and share how God has made a difference in your life. This is not just some nice-sounding faith cliche about how things might be one day. It's something you can actually do today. And it's something you need to do today. Because if you don't, who will?
