Every gift makes a world of difference…
A famous story is told of two men who met on a beach.
“Good evening, friend. What are you doing?”
“I’m throwing these starfish back in the ocean. If I don’t, they’ll die up here.”
“There must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can’t possibly get to them all. You can’t possibly make a difference.” He smiled, picked up yet another starfish and threw it into the sea. “Made a difference to that one!”
