Jesus never traveled outside of a small geographical area, yet his life changed the world. Today we have the opportunity not only for physical travel around the world but also for virtual travel around the globe through social media. I know, for example, that people in varied countries have read this blog and contacted me by email. So, how many people can we touch?
We can touch the people in our daily lives just by smiling and being pleasant. Do you know how unusual this is today? Look around you. How many people look happy? Perhaps very few. But I think that Christians should look happy, and I know it is easier said than done. We know that our Redeemer lives; we know that everything works together for good for those who love Jesus; we know that we are going from glory to glory. Given what we know, we should be happy and that happiness should be reflected on our faces.
For Reflection: In my world today, what difference can I make by smiling and being pleasant?
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
