Topic: Longevity By Impact [Friday May 11, 2018]
Scripture: Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. Acts 9:40 (The New NIV)
Thought For The Day: The impact of your life to your world determines your longevity on earth.
It has been confirmed that one secret of living long on earth is positive impact. Your positive impact on people has the power to prolong your days on earth.
Let me give you an example: our anchor Scripture tells us a story of a follower of Jesus Christ whose name was Dorcas; she was full of good works. One day, she fell sick and died. Peter was sent for and when he went there, the widows showed him all the clothes Dorcas had given to them while she was alive. They presented the evidences of her positive impact on their lives as they cried to Peter. Peter was touched and seemed to have said, ‘This woman is too useful to leave the earth’. So, he prayed to God and the woman was brought back to life.
This means, your contribution affects your destination; your impact affects your outcome. Your impact to your generation is measured by the contribution of your life to the people around you. The impact of your life to your world determines where you can reach in life.
My counsel is, in order to live long on the earth, cultivate the habit of affecting people, touching lives, making a difference in the lives of others, releasing the Word of God from your heart, putting a smile on the face of someone; and you will be amazed where you will reach in life.
Remember this: The impact of your life to your world determines where you can reach in life.
1. Decide to touch lives by meeting the needs of people.
2. Endeavour to impact someone with God’s Word.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to touch the lives of people around me. Help me to put smiles on the faces of people, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
