One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. …
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the sea.
Then, smiling at the man, he said “I made a difference for that one.”
Everyone has a chance to decide whether to make a difference or not. Whether it’s one person or 100+. Knowing that you are doing something right in your heart while someone judges your actions or persuades you to do different is where standing strong in heart, mind, and spirit come in!
