Two hundred years ago, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Had the doctrines of Jesus been preached always as pure as they came from his lips, the whole civilised world would now have been Christian”.
Christians cannot change the world overnight, but we can follow Jesus’ main doctrine –“love your neighbour as yourself” by doing a small act of kindness each day to someone near us. Then the love of God and neighbour will spread like ripples in a pond. “One small act of kindness each day”; today would be a good day to begin. May God bless us all with compassion.
