Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It
Monday, July 3, 2000
This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place.
-- Jeremiah 7:3
As we are in an election year, one of the promises we are given by politician is that of reform in one way or another. We as the public, look at what we have in our current system and see that something has to change. We then call for the politician to bring about the change. But in reality it is us who have in one way or another that have brought about the current practice of what is going on.
Please, Hear the Good News, God has given us the ability make a difference in our surroundings. This task is not for someone else, but for you, it is for myself. Jeremiah was definitely an interesting character, while he practically denounce everything, he did do something special, he offered hope in all he said. This hope was our ability to be responsible for that change they, we, need. So, instead of merely being a master critic, how about being a master change agent. Remember, reform starts with you. It starts with me.
Almighty and Holy Father, Thank you for the gift that you have given me, the gift to make a difference. Instead of only pointing out what needs to me changed or complaining about all that is wrong in the world today, give me the strength and resolve to be a change agent, to help to bring about reform and to change my own ways. And Father, please allow the change to begin with me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
