Influencing The Future

We never know how our influence will reverberate through the lives of the people we come into contact with. 

We do not know how far-reaching and long-lasting our presence and our actions will be in the lives of others. 

For this reason, it is important that we try our best to put good into the world. 

Our words, deeds, and influence may last an eternity through other people. 

We have no way of knowing where our impact will end.

It certainly does not end with us. 

Of that much we can be certain. 

We should keep this in mind as we go throughout our days. 

Everything we do and say may actually last forever. 

Of course, we will make mistakes.

We will cause pain, discord, and discomfort from time to time. 

But, at least if we think beyond this moment, beyond our finite and flawed selves, we can try to make positive change in the world of the future, one word and one action at a time.
