Their line has gone out through all the earth,

       and their words to the end of the world.

                             (Psalm 19:4)

 

An old man walking along the seashore noticed a thousand starfish stranded on the beach. He tried to throw them back in the sea, one at a time. A young man saw this and said, “Old man, you can’t make a dent in the thousands of starfish. What you’re doing doesn’t mean a thing.” But the old man held up one of the starfish and exclaimed, “It means everything to this one!” We are often worried about the salvation of every person in the world, but if we just reach one person, it will mean everything to him or her.
