The story has been told, many times, how that at dawn an old man was walking along the beach. He noticed, at a distance, a young man throwing starfish into the ocean.
After a while the old man caught up the other and asked, “Why are you throwing the starfish back into the ocean?”
“Because they will die if they feel the midday sun.”
“But there are thousands of miles of beach and thousands of starfish. How can your puny efforts make any real difference?”
The young man stopped and looked at the starfish in his hand. After a moment, he threw it into the sea and said, “It makes a difference to this one.”
Friends there are millions needing the gospel – millions who need to hear the saving message (Mk. 16:15-16). There are hoards of people who need an encouraging word (Heb. 10:24-25), and many others needing our prayers lifted in their behalf (Phil. 1:4). Let us not be discouraged and give up due to the vast numbers. Try to make a difference in the life of someone each day. It will make difference to them.
Whose life will you make a difference in today!
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
