You might get tired of me hammering home this point, but it’s so important! If you are a Virtues giant giving Jesus a run for his money in regard to holiness, great!  But if being virtuous seems just way too overwhelming, I will say it again. Just a small effort makes a difference. In the book I speak of the “Butterfly Effect,” how the beat of a butterfly’s wings moves air which can start a domino effect in the environment. A post a few weeks ago spoke of “Baby Steps” that lead to change. And today you hear from one of my favorite Dar Williams songs that expresses the same truth in a poetic way:

Every time you love just a little
Take one step closer, solving a riddle
It echoes all over the world
Every time you opt in to kindness
Make one connection, used to divide us
It echoes all over the world
Every time you choose one more morning
Goodness or meanness, life has one warning
It echoes all over the world
When a leader gets the hungry fed food
When you just make love inside your bedroom
It echoes all over the world
