Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. – 1 John 4:11

It’s often easy to underestimate the impact our lives may have on others – but they really do, even when we don’t hear about it or receive credit immediately.
So make it a point to invest in others’ lives – especially younger people. Though they may not tell you at the time, you are making a difference!
Ask God to open your eyes to how you can make a difference in others’ lives.
