#LightTheWorld by Teaching Others

Jesus taught others, many times one-on-one.  He taught with patience and invited his learners to be active participants.  

The #LightTheWorld initiative topic today is "Jesus Taught Others and So Can You."  I'm trying to think of how I will participate in this particular challenge.  I think I will talk to my friend who wants to learn to play the piano, and I will see if there is a time we can get together to start. Clearly, that will take more than one afternoon (unless she happens to be living in some sort of Groundhog Day existence--if you don't understand the reference, watch the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day").  However, it isn't mandatory that the #LightTheWorld initiative be completed in full each day.  As we go about doing good each day, our little efforts will add up to something bigger.  As my friend will need to practice the piano a little each day until she becomes skilled, I will also need to practice acts of service a little each day until I become skilled at helping others.
