Exercise the “Care” Muscle

“We love because he first loved us”  1 John 4:19 (NIV)

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies..
Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The lesson:
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials…the most money…or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most.


Heavenly Father, thank You for loving and caring to the point that You had Your Son die on the cross for me. Now show me to care about others. In His Name. Amen.
