You have the power

A good friend was returning home from a business trip recently and was sitting in front of a mom and her daughter on the plane. They were headed to Orlando as recipients of a Give Kids The World experience.

Give Kids The World is “a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.”

So he poses the question, “What would you do if you were sitting in front of her and her mom?” He works for  a Fortune 100 company and is in a position to help make her experience a magical one. Plus, he has the heart of a servant.

Everyday we are given the power to make a difference in the lives of someone or several someones. It can be at work, at school, in a store, at church. Anywhere. Anytime.

You have the power. How are you going to use it today?

    David, Mother Teresa and God were both at work here.
    Never-ending love of the people who created Give Kids The World (it is a fitting name), and Mother's Teresa's hope, "If you can't do great things, do small things with great love".

    I could not have said it better. I've only read the biographies of the founders of GKTW, Henri and Pamela Landwirth. But I believe that God is working through them to spread the kind of love He meant for all of us to have.
