We are approaching the end of the quarter, and are therefore wrapping up our “She Did What She Could” book discussion this week. I will be making a book recommendation for next quarter as we quickly approach the holiday season. I will also be sharing some of the things that I am reading during Tuesday’s “Natasha’s Study” posts.

Discussion Points 13 & 14: “We care. But too often we stop because we think that in order for it to count, to make a difference that matters, we have to do something big. Or everything we could do. Or something no else has done.” – Elisa Morgan, pg 99
We all care, remember?
The power of these final chapters lies in the individual stories of ordinary people like you and me, who care. They made daily decisions to do what they could. Those small decisions, each of them, made a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.
SDWSC is a reminder of Jesus Christ and how he wants to be reflected in our relationships with other people. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are “uniquely called to both an individual and a corporate investment of who we are (pg 90).” We are Jesus’ brand!
I just finished reading the book entitled, “Mentor Like Jesus.” When presenting Jesus as a mentor, Regi Campbell stated, “Those he mentored became totally committed to his mission, worked together as an effective team, and through their efforts, arguably one-third of the world’s population believes in what they taught. From eleven people to two billion people…”
Look at those returns! We, together, have the ability to do “greater works than these,” if we intentionally make the commitment. That’s the message I received when I read through this book for the first time, “Be Intentional and Do What You Can.” That’s the take away for all of us. I live with the focus that I am Jesus’ brand and I lovingly and humbly partner with those who share in the passion of being his namesake.
Thanks to Elisa Morgan and the many who shared their stories in this book. Thanks to you for reading, sharing, and partnering with me.
What if we, you and I, did what we could simply because we cared? I mean really? What changes would we see in our world if we all did what we could together? Can you imagine?
