Once there was a young man on the beach surrounded by starfish that had washed up on the sand. One by one he was picking them up and throwing them back into the water to allow them to live. An older man came along and noticed what the younger man was doing and in disbelief asked the younger man, “Do you really think you can save all of these by doing that?” The younger man replied, “I don’t know but I can save this one” and with that he threw another starfish into the water.
Sometimes I think we get overwhelmed with focusing on saving our culture, all of Tennessee, and the world. God calls us to talk with those seekers that He has placed before us and the unsaved He brings into our lives. While we can save no one, we can take a crucial step in getting them on down the path that will get them closer to God. One simple step by us can make an eternal difference.
As Mother Theresa once said, ” If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.”
