I just had a moment.
My goal in life has never been to change the world. I have always tried to be realistic with what I could do. Always had the mindset that if I could help or impact one person, that my job would be satisfied.
Christianity has made a name for itself that is not necessarily a good one. Words that float around about Christianity are homophobic, unforgiving, bigotry, and paternalism to name a few. And most of these I would say are untrue. Unfortunately we have crazy, outspoken people out there making a bad name for us all.
So here I am. Graduating from my undergrad soon and trying to figure out what to do with this vast spectrum of life that is lying out in front of me only a few months away.
So I had this thought. What if I tried to be the change. What if I were to learn what it means to really live as Jesus lived. What if I strove to feed the hungry... to be aware of my surroundings and the needs of others... to change the stereotype.
So I think that's my goal for now. If I can change the way one person views Christianity, I will be doing my job.
