"One Man" Making a Difference

Read on a bumper sticker: "One man can make a difference. JESUS DID."

Now, I am a Christian. Still, I couldn't help but think, "so did Martin Luther King Jr., and Gandhi, Buddha, Mother Theresa, Joan of Arc, Albert Einstein, Ben Franklin, Harriet Tubman, and the list could keep going.

Then of course there is Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and more recently Mengistu Haile Mariam. They, and those like them, also made a vast impression on the world.

The truth is, everyone who enters this world makes a difference. Every person affects those around them which creates a domino effect through time and over great distances.

The question is not whether you will make a difference, but rather what kind of difference are you going to make?
