The real measure of life is the difference it makes. God’s intentions towards you is that you will be different. He made you to be different. Your difference is your identity and uniqueness. The truth is, if you are not different, you are not needed. Therefore, you are designed to make a difference with your life.
There is so much to be done, you can easily lose faith and do nothing at all. There are so many people in the world to reach, it is easy to forget that God wants to use you to touch those within your sphere of responsibility. However, making difference creates varieties and colours. But if you are not different, your absence will not be felt. You can make a major contributions to the society both to help other people and feel good about your choices while also making a difference in your everyday life. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear. I have heard so many people said that their purpose in life is to help people. This is how most of us infuse our lives with meaning trying to somehow leave the world a better place than we found it. As soon as you start talking about changing the world or radically reinventing something good you are talking from your ego, not from your heart. Unless you are working on bringing safety to the society, health to the sick, or opportunity to the poor, the reinvention serves as want, not a need. It takes a better man to acknowledge goodness in others than it does to merely be good oneself. Anyone can criticize or accept praise, but initiating a positive exchange is a hallmark of a difference maker. However, I want you to know that life is too short to waste time on things that have no lasting significance or value. You can make a difference in the world, business, society, carrier and in your community. And because you can; you must. Count on the Lord to honor and multiply your best efforts, even though they may seem small. Last time I checked, God was still rewarding faithfulness. You can do things both large and small, for others and yourself, every day if you choose to. You don’t have to know a lot of things in order to make a huge difference for the Lord in the world. But you do need to know a few things that are great and be willing to live for them and die for them. People that make a difference in the world are not people who have mastered a lot of things. They are people who have been mastered by few things that are very, very great. You just have to know a few basic, simple, glorious, majestic, obvious, unchanging eternal things and be gripped by them and be willing to lay down your life for them, which is why anybody in this crowd can make a world wide difference, because it isn’t you. It is what you are gripped with.
