Our own problems often command our attention at the expense of charitable giving. Suddenly our neighbor’s problems lose their sense of urgency and it becomes all too easy to look away. Make a difference in one person’s life today. We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.
On any ordinary day we can choose to make a difference. Great people, who make a big difference, most times don’t do anything extraordinary – they just do small, good things over and over again. To create change we need to change. For things to be different, we need to see things differently. As Shakespeare observed, “The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.” We can do nothing or we can choose to make a difference.
