Do you make a positive or negative difference?

“I f you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in the dark with a mosquito.”— Unknown

When reading this quote I am reminding of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” This is one of my dad’s all-time favorite movies so we watched it almost every Christmas. The theme of the movie is basically that we don’t know what kind of impact we have of other people’s lives.

Every relationship, every decision, every event takes our lives down a different road. Each one of us can and does make a difference. The question is do we make a positive difference or a negative one?
