What's in your hand? Many people are searching for significance. They read books, take courses and wait for a audible voice from Heaven before they take a step or make a move. For many we are waiting until we arrive at that pinnacle point. Waiting until we have gained all the knowledge, raised all the funds, or developed the perfect plan. So when will that be? While preparation and planning is great, and expanding your knowledge and expertise is admirable, none of it is necessary to bring a smile to the face of another.
We can often overlook the simple things that we take for granted. Whether they are the gifts and talents that come naturally or the simple gestures of kindness and gratitude. How many times have you stopped to thank the custodian at your school or job? How about a heartfelt thanks to the security guard or the cashier at the store or restaurant you frequent, who is working a double shift to feed their family. Let's not forget a parent, spouse or family member. Believe it or not, a simple kind words and a smile can go a long way.
Guess what? You can live a life of significance staring today. I challenge you today to ask yourself what's in your hand? What simple thing can you do today to bring a smile to one person's face? A phone call, "thank you" or small note of encouragement can go a long way. What's in your hand?
