Who am I, anyway, to think that I could make a difference?

How many did it take to rescue the man on the Jericho road? One good
Samaritan.

How many did it take to confront Pharaoh and lead the Exodus? One man - Moses.

In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. In 1776, one vote gave America the English language instead of German. In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Jackson from impeachment. In 1941, one vote gave Adolph Hitler control of the Nazi party!

Esther, a Jewish girl who was married to a pagan king, broke longstanding tradition, marched into her husband's throne room, spoke her mind and rescued her nation from a Holocaust. One woman - only one - saved the nation, because she was willing to get personally involved to the point of sacrifice. She said, "If I perish, I perish" (Est 4:16).

Before you say, "Somebody else should be doing this instead of me," read these words: "I am only one, but I'm still one. I cannot do everything - but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do." Ask God today, "What can I do in this situation?"
