Greater Things Than These

Day 28: If you could do one thing to make the world a better place, what would you do?

It depends on how big this one thing could be.  I wish I could end world hunger.  That's one thing, right?  But I know that's big.  That's huge.  Hunger and poverty are both issues that fill me with passion.  If I could do something huge to ensure that there Cute african kids jpgwould never be a starving child again, I would in a heartbeat.

If my one thing had to be smaller, I think I would write a book.  A very impacting book.  I've always wanted to be remembered through my writing, so writing a book that would touch many hearts would be something amazing for me.  Perhaps the "one" book would touch people's hearts and convince the world to turn around and provide hungry kids with food.  Perhaps the book would fill young girls struggling with depression and no self worth with hope.

We can do anything with Christ's help.  One day I will write a book that touches hearts... and I can do more than that because I'm not limited to only one thing to make the world a better place.  We've been made to glorify God.  We can perform amazing things for Him.

John 14:12
"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father."

We are meant for greatness.

How would you answer this question?


  1. I saw this quote somewhere and it's what I would do... I would wish for the power of love to overcome the love of power.

    But if I'm having to do something on a smaller scale, I would love to be able to do small things (like writing a book) that really spoke to people and impacted them. :/

  2. One thing? That's a tough one!

    If I'm honest, my 'one' thing would be a slight cheat, in that I'd live a life of love.. in doing that, it'd allow me to reach out, in love, to those who'd otherwise be forgotten, and overlooked. I have a passion for the forgotten, those whom no one else will love, I feel called to love them, and help them.
