Changing the world begins with you


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times There’s a lot of things in this world that need changing and those things are often the subject of much conversation which usually takes the form of complaining about the problem and then saying someone, perhaps the government, should do something about it. The problem with such conversations is that, first, they often amount to little more than venting which allows those talking about it to put in their two cents worth or more and then either change the subject or just keep running off at the mouth. The other problem is that in demanding that someone do something about it the someone in question the speaker is referring to is someone other than themselves. The result of this is that the status quo is maintained and the problem remains unsolved and nothing is accomplished other than to give the speaker more opportunities to run their mouth. The truth is that if you want change you have to make it happen, either as an individual or as part of a group, because if change is going to occur it has to start with someone and that someone has to be willing to get involved to make it happen. If you want a problem solved, an issue effectively addressed, the world made a better place, you have to make that happen. Thought has to become words has to become action if change you want to see is to happen. So the next time you say someone should do something about a particular problem look in the mirror, because that someone is you.
