It’s Your Wonderful Life

Do you remember in the movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” how George Bailey wished for, and then was granted, the opportunity to see what life would be like in his town if he had never been born? He got to see how the lives of people he had known turned out without any interaction with, or knowledge of, him. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if you were one of those people–but in your present life? Who are the people who have made a big difference in your life? What would your life be like today had you never meet them?

And how about on the flip-side, what impact have you had on the lives of others? Hard to tell, isn’t it? I think a lot of people tend to underestimate the impact they have on others–especially the positive impact.

Thanks to the folks at “Funders and Founders,” we can get a peek at this impact. Here is an infographic they created that attempts to count the number of people whose lives may be different because of us.

  3. A fascinating graphic revealing our potential for positive contributions in our world. Add to that, “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). We should be dancing through each day with great expectations for what He will do through us, to impact others. So glad you shared this, Paul. And thank you for stopping by my blog. I’m delighted you found “Satisfaction Guaranteed” to be meaningful.
