Jesus changed the world by loving people one at a time. Influencing just one person at a time may seem insignificant at first glance. But as we better understand the surprising habits of Jesus, we unlock the power of small things done with great love. Learning to love people like Jesus did takes intentional practice and repetition. This devotional helps you build this vital habit into your daily life. Each devotion includes questions for reflection and a challenge to inspire you to make a difference in the world every day--one person at a time.
