Is-the-world-changingThere have been a lot of crazy, traumatic events taking place lately around the world.

Terrorist attacks, mass shootings, extreme weather events and horrible accidents dominate the media and it’s easy to get caught up in it all.

It’s easy to be influenced by what we see.

To become timid and afraid.

To fear for the future.

To think that the worst is yet to come.

And worse still, to think that it is inevitable and we can’t do anything about it.

There may be terrible things taking place in the world, but that doesn’t mean that you and I can’t make it better.

We can speak words of hope, peace and encouragement.

We can smile and laugh.

We can place a comforting arm around those who are hurting.

We can celebrate our differences rather than criticising them.

We can act in love.

So let me ask you, is the world changing you, or are you changing the world?
