One of the most important things we can do today, and indeed in life, is to make a positive contribution to the life of others.
It may be allowing someone to pick our brain about an area that we’re more adept in.
It could be that what we offer is a word of affirmation or a willingness to listen to a person in need of encouragement and care.
But in the case of some, our contribution may be a sharp rebuke or the kick up the backside that helps them to move in the right direction, or narrowly miss the biggest mistake of their life.
Think about that for a moment.
Just as others have played a role in making a difference in our lives, its fair to say that we have the joyous opportunity to better the life of someone else today by giving something of ourselves back.
As a parent, teacher, team leader, pastor, friend or coach, you have a significant part to play in the lives of those you interact with from day-to-day.
Yes, you make a difference.
So with that in mind, whatever your contribution, be certain to make it both intentional and positive, knowing that you’re helping to shape the future.
