A week ago few of us would have imagined a world slowed down to the pace of horse and carriage, all tech excepting, however this is where we strangely find ourselves. This pandemic is only abnormal in that it is world wide. Consider that this same extreme swift change of course happens to individual families every moment of every day through other unexpected twists in the road. What do we do when forced down a path we would not willingly travel?
Will we change our plans of raising World Changers? Will we take our convictions and courage to daily walk a road less traveled and replace it with fear of illness and/or desire to maintain personal comfort at the cost of another?
As difficult as it is not to get caught up in the media frenzy and keep cool heads of consideration and courtesy, we must try. When you are scared, replace that emotion with an action of service. When becoming worried about scarcity, replace that with knowledge that there were previous ages who would be thankful for what we deem inadequate. Be as purposeful in your thoughts, actions and words as we are all becoming in washing our hands. Remain constant in teaching your children that the road less traveled may seem more alien than usual, but it is the path toward positive change. Be the positive change you want for our world- boldly, fearlesless, faithfully and your children will follow your example!
