Making a Difference

As you grow older, you will discover that you have TWO HANDS. ONE for helping yourself. The OTHER, for helping others. -Audrey Hefburn

When you smile at people, make them laugh, or just talking with people with a light/compassionate heart or mood, people pick up on this and it changes their mood as well.

So often people will ask me why I am so nice. Or just state “no one does those things anymore”. It is time we made an impact and started showing people how we should act towards one another. Whether you are a believer or not, stop judging or focusing on what a bad mood you are in and cheer someone else up. You would be amazed how much of a benefit it is for you and the other person.

When you make someone else laugh or smile, you begin to laugh and smile, which not only works your face muscles and abs but is so good for you emotionally. When you help someone else you get your own personal emotional high, which can be addictive and life-changing for you and other people around you.

Do an evaluation on yourself and situation when you go out, think to yourself… Am I putting the work day behind me? Who can I make laugh or smile, now? What can I do to help the people around me?

Matthew 5:14-16

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

When you do things to help people, you make an impact on those around you creating a ripple effect (others doing the same, etc). Also making people wonder why you are being nice, and questioning why? This can even lead them to God.
