The Mosquito in Your Room

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle [you know nothing about].” —Ian McLaren

We impact every person we meet—there’s no stopping it. When we’re indifferent, people feel it—and often learn it—from us. The same thing is true when we’re kind, compassion and loving—people feel it and learn it—from us. That’s how the world is changed—it’s how Jesus did it and it’s why His impact has traveled so far for so long so powerfully. Walking as He walked Him, even the smallest person has mighty impact. It’s just that big.

“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room…” —Bette Reese

Give ’em Heaven.

Ever feel completely unfit to serve God or people? Good.

He continually watches the good and the wicked, and as His most holy eyes have not found among sinners any smaller man, nor any more insufficient and sinful, therefore He chose me to accomplish the marvelous work that God hath undertaken; He chose me because He could find none more worthless, and He wishes to confound the nobility and grandeur, the strength, the beauty and the learning of this world. He ignored every popular idea of His day (and ours) about what kind of person could fit the role.  Jesus’ band of disciples was untrained and without influence—a motley group for world change.” —Oswald Chambers

What will He do through you?
What can’t He do…?
