"You can't change the world"

These are words I have heard frequently from people in this last year. It saddens me and makes me think. I wish I could, or at least try. I believe change must begin with me. I believe we are to live as Christ would live and love others as Christ would love others. I do not believe the world will change, but I do believe that I can with His help.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

1 John 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?"
Dorothy Day

Maybe you can't change the whole world but you can change it for each person whose life you touch!
