the-capacity-to-instillIt’s time to start instilling hope again in the people around us.

To give others a reason to be optimistic about the future.

To help them replace their fear with courage, their negativity with a smile and their hopelessness with the understanding that through their actions, they can make a positive difference in the world.

To paint a picture of a better tomorrow if we work hard together.

To talk about workable solutions, not complain incessantly about our problems.

To highlight the wonderful people in the world who are doing remarkable things, not just the evil few who make the evening news.

To help people to understand that the best is yet to come.

The capacity to instill hope is one of the most important functions of any leader, parent or pastor.

It’s something that we can all do to make the world a better place.

But of course, you can’t give away what you don’t have.
