Thought For the Day: It is Individuals and Not Government That Solves Problems

“Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals.”  – Margaret Mead

Have you ever run into a situation where you found yourself saying someone ought to do something?  Maybe that someone is you.  Think on it.  If not you, then who?  If not now then when?  There is a lot of truth in this proposition.  If something moves your soul to what to see action about a given issue or concern, maybe there is a reason.  That reason might just be God nudging you on to do the things you know someone should do.

Someone should so something… why not you?

  2. Some of the things that I’ve been involved with in my life that have meant the most have resulted in asking that question and then taking action. I treasure the times I was able to help out and get food and help to the homeless in California and clothes, shoes, toys and other things to a children’s home down in Mexico. So, I mean it when I encourage folks to take that chance and step out when you feel God’s nudge. I don’t mean this in a bragging way. It’s only to say that these are some of the most meaningful moments in my otherwise fairly simple life.
