I have never yet met a person who didn’t want to make a difference. A difference they deem as positive. Some want to make a difference in technology, some in music, entertainment, business, world health…and still others in individual people’s lives. Whatever our “difference desire” is, that desire to make a difference for the better is built into our DNA.

Why do you think that is? Think of the billions of people on this planet. If each one was making a difference in a positive way, how might our world change?

In our humanity, we are linked.

We are linked together in our humanity, and my faith tells me we are also linked together in the image of God. Granted, those links are often distorted, unrecognized or rejected. But they are also redeemable. I believe that to be true. We may differ in religion, politics, and cultural norms… but in our humanity we are linked. We were all born. We all suffer, some more than others. We all overcome, some more than others. And we all die. Those things we share. So I see a pattern that repeats itself in every society, every industry, every family. It is in linking our overcoming to someone else’s struggle that we make the most difference.

We can do small things with great love.

Mother Teresa is one of my heroes. She said, “In this life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small things with great love. If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.”

Don’t let your inability to see how you can make a huge difference keep you from making one at all.
