Want to Truly Take a Stand? It Requires Getting Off Your Duff

Paul W. offered these thought-provoking words that are well worth repeating. You can check out his full comment here:

"We mistakenly believe our avenue to change the world is to elect people who will do the work for us. We think we can stand up for our moral convictions (Republicans) or stand up for the poor and needy (Democrats) by political means. While this approach might help, it never excuses us from teaching, healing, feeding, and loving the people we meet everyday, as Jesus himself did.

"If our world does not change, it is our fault--not the elected officials, not the right-wing conservatives, not the homosexuals, not big business. We are His avenue to change the world, one individual at a time."
