Your Life Matters

1 Chronicles 28:1-29:30
Verse of the Day:
"Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other obeyed God, many will be made righteous." (Romans 5:19 NLT)
It’s amazing the impact one person’s life can have on the world—Let alone one action. When I woke up to write this devo today the news was once again plagued with the heartbreaking news of another attack on innocent lives by what appears to be one young man. Time and time again our news stories are flooded with heartbreak due to one person’s terrible actions. We know that so much bad can come from one person, but so much good can also come from one person.
Think of Billy Graham, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, and Princess Diana. None of these people are perfect but they used the one life they were given to bring about tremendous good to the world. We may never have lasting, recognizable names, but God wants to use us where we are at to make lasting good in our communities.
