The Power of One


“I am only one
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do”

This poem by Edward Everett Hale is an inspiration. And it is the thought I want to commit to your meditation right now.

It can be overwhelming trying to make a difference or changing the world. And come to think of it, you can’t take on the world like that. Changing the entire world begins and really is all about influencing the person next to you. You may not be able to do everything. That is sure. As humans we are finite. We have limited capacities-capacities of time, money, expertise, knowledge and influence. I cannot do everything. You cannot do everything. But that shouldn’t stop you from doing the little you can do.

See, it is little drops of water that make a mighty ocean. If you do what you can, and I do what I can; maybe we can together change the world. Jesus said it this way: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) It does not matter the size of your light-big or small? Your responsibility is to let it shine. You do what you can and leave the rest to God.

Look around you today: What one thing can you change? What one step can you take that will make a difference in the world – your own little corner of the world? What one thing can you do – make a statement, do an act of kindness, volunteer your time and skills, lend your voice to a cause and speaking out? Be a force for good and for God in your immediate environment – your family, workplace, and neighborhood. Go ahead and do that, friend. Now, that’s how to be a world-changer!

ONE OUGHT NEVER TO TURN ONE’S BACK ON A THREATENED DANGER AND TRY TO RUN AWAY FROM IT. IF YOU DO THAT, YOU WILL DOUBLE THE DANGER. BUT IF YOU MEET IT PROMPTLY AND WITHOUT FLINCHING, YOU WILL REDUCE THE DANGER BY HALF. NEVER RUN AWAY FROM ANYTHING. NEVER! – Sir. Winston Churchill

Have a blessed weekend. You will succeed!
