Tolstoy's Challenge

Reg Grant on March 12, 2009 in DTS Devotional

There are a few things I’d like to change. Some folks at work need some adjusting. And there are a few politicians who could benefit from a permanent change of climate. Then I read Tolstoy. “Everyone thinks of changing the world,” he said, “but no one thinks of changing himself.” James 1:23, 24: “For if someone merely listens to the message and does not live it out, he is like someone who gazes at his own face in a mirror. For he gazes at himself and then goes out and immediately forgets what sort of person he was.” Want to change the world? You might want to change your mind.
