Then, we casually leave the fire and we think the embers will die out by themselves. Yes, they often do, but the opposite is also true. You have heard it said, ‘It only takes a spark to get a fire going.’ An ember, with a little life breathed into it can become a raging firey inferno within minutes!!
All it takes is someone to fan the flames. The same is true with injustice, or prejudice, or separation. All it takes is the spark of jealousy or a story to create a raging fire that can tear relationships apart!! Why do we do that? Why do we encourage that??
If you are going to fan a flame, make sure it is a positive fire. Fires can be used for good purposes too. But, all too often, we fan the flames that separate and divide. We need to stop that!! I want to encourage you to find an ember of I.M.P.A.C.T. (I Make Positive Actions Come True) today. With enough positive actions we can not only combat the negativity of the world, but we can sniff out its flame!!! Will you join me and start an ember of positive actions in your world today?
