Your life has an impact
Each of us has a purpose and a role to play in YHVH’s plan. I saw a short video last week of dominoes, gradually increasing in size, that illustrated this beautifully. You may have seen it too. The biggest domino was standing almost half a meter tall and the smallest was so small it had to be put in place with a tweezer. That smallest domino was set in motion with the slightest movement of the tweezer, though it started the action of throwing over all the dominoes, even the greatest one. Even the slightest action has an effect of great significance. I want to encourage you with this. Each of us, no matter how insignificant we are in our own eyes or the eyes of others, has an important role to play in YHVH’s plan. We may not even know what impact we make, but we do.

Lives can be and are ruined because of this. Accidents due to drunken drivers, children whose lives are ruined because of adults without self-control. Broken marriages…to name a few examples. Each of us have done things we will always regret, things we did as a result of no self-control. This article is not to condemn, but to help. These situations and temptations are a part of being human, but we must know how to deal with this. We must know our limitations and our strengths in order to ensure we don’t fall victim to this and suffer or make others suffer.
Finding meaning is probably one of the most sought after objectives in life. Many books have been written about this subject, yet it remains unreachable to most and the question is often asked why this is. The reason may be that we seek for answers in the wrong place…
