From The Pastor’s Pen – By Brian Horrobin
I am not sure who coined this phrase, but it’s a good one: “To the world you may just be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”
Due to our overexposure to professional athletes and Hollywood icons, we sometimes come to the erroneous conclusion that our little, simple lives are insignificant.
However, God created each one of us to make a difference in this world, and that difference may be to simply impact one person.
Your life is valuable and it matters.
Look at what David observed about God’s opinion of a single, solitary life in Psalm 139:13-16: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”
Look around you today at your family, your friends, your coworkers.
Someone needs you and you need someone.
God made you for a purpose and wants you to fulfill that purpose.
My wife, Ruth, is just one person, but she means the world to me.
I can say that about each of my children, too, and then I could move on to others.
As you start a new week decide that you are going to be a blessing to someone, because God created you for that purpose.
