I think the most powerful people are parents, teachers, church folk, neighbors, co-workers, family and friends.
They are the most powerful because they can impact the lives around them with the power of their influence and their example.
I think we need to remember and be aware of how important relationship is.
People with great power seem to be totally missing it.
There are millions of little people out there, quietly helping in their communities, neighborhoods and on mission fields around the world. Beautiful souls who are helping in refugee camps, teaching in inner-city schools, feeding the hungry. Gosh, I have so much respect for these unsung, mainly invisible helpers.
(I saw a clip of a refugee camp of 300,000 in South Sudan the other day. I am astonished and thankful that someone is coming to the aide of these people. And just imagine....this is but one. How many other places are people suffering and others are trying to alleviate the suffering? )
Gandalf is right. These ordinary folk are keeping darkness at bay.
God bless them.
Keep them safe.
Encourage one another,
