Lets do something...

What really matters in life? We go through it so fast, doing this or that, making sure we have this type of medicine, worrying about how we will do in a class or a job, and so on. But does all of that really matter? Aren't there more important things in life than just day to day things? In a regular day, we can come in contact with so many people, and we don't even smile or say hi, it's just rush rush, rush, I need to do this, I need to finish that. We can get so caught up int the whirlwind of earthly life, that we forget what we were made to do, we were made to live for God, to praise Him, to glorify Him. We were also made to serve others, and to help others. It's not about us, it's about God and living like Christ, for others.
We all get caught in the world's mindset, "I do what I do, so that I can get what I want." Just these past few days I have been so lazy, just playing on the computer, and barely getting any work done. I got sucked into the world, and to tell you the truth, it's not very fulfilling at all. I feel so much better, happier, and maybe even healthier after I have served someone, done something for someone else. How about you?
I think we need to go out and do what Christ would do. This past week there were tons of fires in Texas, and over 1,000 families have been effected. You can do something for them, even if that is just praying. There are tons of organizations out there that are having food, clothing, and other necessity 'drives' to help out the victims of the fires. All it takes is some canned food you have, a left over blanket, or 5 dollars. It doesn't have to be big to make a difference in someone's life. Even after the fires are contained, there are things you can do. Tons of other countries need food, clean water, medical supplies and more. There are lots of organizations that help with this. You don't even have to go far to help, you could volunteer at a food bank, buy a homeless person a meal, or talk to elders in a nursing home. You can make a difference, and it is so much more rewarding, then sitting on the computer for hours upon hours, or getting consumed in work or school. We all mess up, but God forgives us. We should learn from our mistakes, and go out and do what Christ would do,  and let God change our lives and the lives of others around us.
Go out and do something, it doesn't have to be big, God can use anyone to change the world. Why don't you let him use you.
You can Make a Difference, but you need God, you can't do it alone. Remember to give God the glory and praise, because He is the one that does it all. He can do anything, and we have the privilege to come along side him and reach out to the world.
