This is the attitude, y'all... non-judgemental, though unwavering in commitment to correct principle, selfless and infectious love. May God bless us each in our striving to cultivate this.

It's not airy-fairy to feel like you can change the world. Because the truth of the matter is, you are always having effects on pieces of the world, whether family, friends, or acquaintances... now that you realize you do it all the time, think about how changing the world must come with a certain level of responsibility. How would you like to shape what you have the power to shape?
