I believe that within each of us is a desire to know that we made a difference in life. We want to know that how we spent our time, energy, and money contributed to something greater than ourselves.
However, it seems that relatively few people find what I call alignment — the opportunity to match up their skills and life experiences with their desire to make a difference. A few people find that intersection at work; others look for ways to contribute outside of their careers. Some have stopped looking altogether.
As Christ followers, we have a unique opportunity to not only make a difference in our world but to make a difference for eternity. From the very beginning, Christianity has been a movement focused on changing the world. We call fellow travelers to follow Jesus with us because we believe his way is the best way.
