Social For Good

Technology

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Let The Good Shine During Dark Times


Since COVID 19 has hit the American shores, I have seen fellow citizens move from complete frenzy to fellowship. In times of crisis, a timeless quote from the late Fred Rogers tends to emerge again and again on social media: "Look for the helpers." This sage old advice, has proven true once again. Even in our darkest times we can be inspired by all the shining examples of love, generosity, and kindness. I believe in my heart the fruit of the Holy Spirit is far more contagious than any virus that may plague us. If we continue to highlight the good among us, it will spread.

What is influence?


John Maxwell says, “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.”

Mr. Webster says influence is, “The capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others.”

Jesus teaches us how to influence people. This is what Jesus did during his earthly ministry. Leaving his throne of grace, Jesus came to earth and lived his life among the lost. He brought God’s grace into everyday settings like people’s homes, social events and the marketplace. Problems and life circumstances were his classroom. We should follow his example. Offering grace and truth, we can be spiritual guides to those who are struggling with life. We can be a positive influence.
