Reflection

Individually and collectively, we can contribute to goodness in the world.“You can change the world” is more than a slogan. Who we are, what we believe, how we live spreads the gospel vision. Our inner fields of consciousness can resonate with those of others having similar desires. Slowly, the influence can spread. The Spirit visible in us can solely impact our bit of the world. Those who resonate with us also become part of this transformation. We become the “leaven” which causes a transformation from within. The changing in each life can spread through the whole. Our lives are not insignificant.

Prayer

Make us leaven in the world.

Action

Reflect on the power of your life to affect the balance of good and evil in the world. How can you do this with your inner as well as outer actions.

He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” And again he said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”
Luke 13:18-21

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
Matthew 5:13

When each of us vibrates love and compassion, our energy mysteriously unites with the energy of love and compassion all over the planet, augmenting the field of compassion, making its resonance, manifestation, and influence a very powerful force for transformation and healing. Could there be any greater cause for hope in the community of life?

You can never really live anyone else’s life, not even your child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life, and what you’ve become yourself.
Eleanor Roosevelt

 The humblest individual exerts some influence, either for good or evil, upon others.
Henry Ward Beecher

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.
Jackie Robinson

You are here to make a difference, to either improve the world or worsen it. And whether or not you consciously choose to, you will accomplish one or the other.”
