Like the Starfish Story : Making a Difference One Child at a Time

As I walked along the seashore…

This young boy greeted me. He was tossing stranded starfish back to the deep blue sea. I said “Tell me why you bother, why you waste your time this way. There’s a million stranded starfish, does it matter, anyway?”

 And he said, “It matters to this one. It deserves a chance to grow. It matters to this one. I can’t save them all I know. But it matters to this one; I’ll return it to the sea. It matters to this one, and it matters to me.”

As I walked into Social Services…

This little boy greeted me. I knew that he deserved a chance, the hope in his eyes I could see. Some say, “Tell me why you bother, why you spend your time this way. He is only one of thousands, does it matter anyway?”

 And I said, “It matters to this one. He deserves a home I know.  It matters to this one. With our families help he will grow. But it matters to this one; I’ll help him become what God wants him to be.  It matters to this one, and it matters to me.”


 ~Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, Making a Difference~  Jude 1:22-23

There are so many ways you can make a difference In a child’s life. It may not be that you are called to Foster or to Adopt. Pray that the Lord reveals what it is you can do. You could sponsor a child through WorldHelp organization or start by teaching your neighbor’s children about Jesus. Look for opportunities to lend a helping hand, encourage and make yourself a positive influence in the lives of the children you come in contact with.

We can all make a difference! Together we can change the world. One child at a time!
