“Making a Difference”
This week Christians and Jews will participate in services and ceremonies celebrating their respective traditions. Christians find their spiritual roots in the history ofIsrael. I have no idea how many people the world over will participate in these services which to them have so much meaning and value. The founders of these two world religions recognized the value of ritual, but they emphasized the importance of action. Abraham was blessed to be a blessing. Those of you who read these words have been blessed in so many ways. Try counting them! Take a break from counting your blessings and think about ways you can make a positive difference in someone’s life. Let’s us take our religion to a new level this week and take at least one action that will result in our world being a little better. It does not have to be the answer to the global problems of hunger, war and poverty. There is someone you know by name who needs your help. If at all possible, do it before you go to services and tell no one. By the time you get to services you’ll have the greatest blessing and only you will know. Service makes a difference!
