When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

We each have a God-given will. Only you can exercise it. Therefore, you alone are held accountable for what you choose to do with your minutes, day-by-day, by-day. Let’s love others by faith with agape love as we surrender to the immediate control of the indwelling Holy Spirit. And as this happens, we experience change to the likeness of Christ.
Romans 8:29 – “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be “conformed” to the image of his Son …”
To change the world, together, let’s be willing to change our individual Self … in “conformity“ to the image of Christ.
“Not “I” but Christ.” Galatians 2:20
