BE THE FIRST

Be The First

There is so much happening in this world. With so many problems I believe there are also so many solutions. We are the solutions! Years ago I heard someone say,

“God’s solution to every problem is a person.”

I could not agree more. What problem can you effect? What problem can you help turn around? What problem can you help correct? What problem can you bring awareness to? What problem can you share with someone? What problem frustrates you? What problem are you complaining about? What problem are you the solution for?

I used to think I had to change the entire world. But, then I realized that problems come in all sizes. Now I know that changing the world can start with changing something small. So what small thing can you help change?

There are many organizations doing great things that you can help with. Many of them were the first to do what they are doing. Maybe you be the first to do something today. What can you be the first at today?

Be the first to give up your seat for someone else. Be the first to raise your hand in class. Be the first to donate your time. Be the first to donate your money. Be the first to call that person. Be the first to plant a seed. Be the first to speak out on injustice. Be the first to pray for them. Be the first to hold their hand. Be the first to share a meal. Be the first to listen. Be the first to cry with them. Be the first to sing that song. Be the first to share that story. Be the first to write that blog post. Be the first in your family to graduate. Be the first to give them a high five. Be the first to greet. Be the first to give a hug. Be the first to honor them. Be the first to give a gift. Be the first to congratulate. Be the first to teach that lesson. Be the first to learn a new trade. Be the first to encourage. Be the first to enlighten. Be the first to smile. Be the first to share your testimony. Be the first!

Enjoy Life!
