It is a very lonely place to be when you realize that if you didn’t show up tomorrow, the world, your home, your workplace, and your community would be exactly the same. It is during those lonely moments that we all realize, despite all of the wealth we may accumulate, despite the power and prestige we may gain at work, and even in spite of how much we may love God, our most basic desire is to have some influence on our world…. We want to have an influence on this world and to know that the world is better because God allowed us to be a part of it.
