A World that Works for You and Me
What is the number one killer of progress and transformation in any group of people? Apathy. The thing is, when people do not care, the world will not work. The picture of a world that works looks like people who are “audacious” enough to take the responsibility for the entire human race. This means, people have to start caring in order for true transformation to take place.
A “survival of the fittest” mentality does not produce transformation. It does not do anything for quality of life. In this mentality, it is every person for himself or herself. One does not care about the other’s welfare as long as one is provided for and protected. This mentality will only promote survival, nothing more.
Let’s take the cue from Jesus. He tells us that the most important thing is love (Matthew 22:37-39). He came because of love (John 3:16). Paul tells us that above anything else, love remains (1 Corinthian 13:4).
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39)
Each person holds the opportunity to make a difference in this world. In fact, we have the power to create a world that works for all of us. However, it is not an easy task. It requires courage. It requires responsibility and commitment. It requires love. Take a step forward: “What we create together is a relationship in which our work can show up as making a difference in people’s lives…If not you, who? If not now, when? If not here, where?”
We have been raised and educated in a “you or me” world, wherein it is not natural for us to think we can truly make a difference in the world. We do aspire to live meaningful lives and to impact the world in a positive way, but it usually goes against how we are programmed to function. A “you and me” world requires for us to work out a new set of rules of living on your own.
