According to research conducted by Columbia University, you probably know about 600 people. That means 600 people are watching you. To each of them, you make a difference – good or bad.
Now, I’m not saying you know 600 people well, just that you know 600 people. The question is, what difference does your life make to each of them?
Thomas Jefferson said, “Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world was watching.”
Jesus said it even better. “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
Whether you are an addict or have been traumatized by one, someone is watching. What you do next – starting today – will make a difference, not only in your life, but in the lives of others.
Recovery Step: You are being watched by 600 people. Live the life today that will impact your world tomorrow.
