Every Life Matters


People who really want to make a difference in the world usually do it, in one way or another. And I've noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: they hold the unshakeable conviction that EVERY LIFE MATTERS.

They get excited about one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren't determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they're satisfied with small changes. Over time, small changes add up...

They don't do anything to call attention to themselves, they simply pay attention the the EVERYDAY needs of others. 

-Becky Clark



"I was hungry and you gave Me food, 
I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, 
I was a stranger and you welcomed Me...
for I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these My brothers, 
you did it to Me." 

Matthew 25:36, 40

Thank you for this, Bethany! Your posts encourage me so much. This, along with many of your other posts, teach me that the Christian life doesn't have to be filled with huge works that are for everyone to see. Even something as simple as a kind word of a plate of cookies given to a neighbor is significant to God. Keep posting, please! And, God bless you richly!
