For centuries and millennia, many well-meaning people have wanted to change the world- wanted mankind to have good relationships with each other, wanted the problems of poverty, corruption, and crime to end, and wanted to sit peace and love on the throne of life. In search of a solution, man invented different types of religion meant to teach morality, others began to philosophize, and some others just sit back and wish things would change, or wish they were never born.
From time immemorial, efforts have been made to bring peace and morality to the world- to change the world. Our only problem is that we focused too much on the whole of mankind, neglecting the individual near us. “Love your neighbour as yourself” is what I call “How ought a man to live”, and this is how to change the world. It does not have to be a thousand, a million, or a billion people that you reach, just reach out to a man in a thousand, million, or billion, ways, teach that man to do same to other persons, and reachout to the next man. Be of help to the people in your life, advocate for peace and justice, smile always, do not cheat or fraud, just love. This is not to say that you shouldn’t take part in humanitarian services, as a matter of fact, it is to say that you perform humanitarian services in the most effective way. Join red cross, join rescue missions, join educational outreaches, give to NGO’s, do all you can to be of help, in any (legal) way you can.
Much important also, is to take care of your environment. I am a Health Educator by profession and I MUST advocate for this. Do not dispose wastes in drainages, canals, streams, rivers, oceans, or on the road, clear bushes around you, change the engine oil regularly in your machines and automobiles to avoid very harmful gas emissions, and encourage others to do all of these.
The Love of our MAKER empowers us to love our neighbours as ourselves- Love God!! This is the “most excellent way”.
Let us change the world, one man, and one place at a time, with LOVE.
Share your thoughts on other ways to change our world and our nations, they will be useful. One love!!
