The Power of One

Monday 15 August 2011.

“The Power of One” is one of my favourite movies. It’s about a young boy growing up in South Africa during the years of Apartheid who, in the midst of his own difficult circumstances, saw the injustice surrounding his country and decided to do something to change it.

There have been countless people throughout the ages who have made a difference in and through their life. Some of them are known to us – Jesus, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela come to mind. Even more people are unknown in the books of history but have still made a difference in the world around them.

Proverbs 31:10 (MSG) says, A good woman is hard to find and worth far more than diamonds. This chapter then goes on to describe the character of this woman in the various facets of her life, from house work to helping those in need.

Making a difference is not about fame or glamour. It’s done in the everyday things of life- from the way that you show love to those around you, to your words spoken both publicly and privately. It’s knowing that your life, the life of one person, can and will make a difference through the choices you make.

A Girl of Wisdom chooses to grow godly character within her life that overflows into the world around her. Regardless of what she’s doing or who she is with, she chooses to make a difference by reflecting Christ in all she does.
