Be about Something
All that's necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke ~ There are many capable individuals who can say or do something to effectuate change in their communities, yet they do nothing. But the minute others try to make a difference they are the first to be a critic. If you are interested in "doing" then by all means get busy "doing". None of us need a "specific" cause, because all we need to do is look at those closest to us. First we must see if there is a need within our own family, then we should focus our attention outwardly. We cannot help the world if our home is out of order. Our responsibility is not to be helpful only to those who look and sound just like us, that is too easy. Those that are lost or purveyors of evil, definitely stand in need of a friend, guidance or simply a kind word. I am hopeful that one day we all would step up and be about something--and stop being just observers and critics. Either we are a part of the problem or we are a part of the bringing about a solution. Be encouraged to get involved in making a difference in your own way. May the Love and Peace of God be with you today and everyday.
