So our 2 special needs boys started a special summer camp. The first time in the 14 years they have been on earth that I have allowed them to be out of my sight besides school.
I was super excited about it! They needed some independence and I have THOROUGHLY checked the place out! ALL GOOD! Everyone there is from the special needs “community” or will be going into it as helpers or teachers.
Along with their activities they will be going on field trips. We were given tshirts to be worn as a group when they go on these trips. They are bright green (can see them a mile away 🙂 ) with a set of hands making a heart shape with the words:
“BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.”~Gandhi
I love these ladies (and the one man) that run the program through the park districts in our area. They are sweet and VERY caring. But why? Why does everything have to be about every one else but Jesus? The quote may seem harmless but as a born again believer I find Gandhi offensive.
People are so under the delusion that “we-people” can make the world a better place-if only we would get rid of ALL the guns-if only we would ALL just accept each other-if only we would ALL just…well you get the “picture”.
This world has a heart issue and not ALL are going to change because so many have and will continue to reject Jesus. Jesus changes our hearts individually so that we may share Him with ALL… so that we do NOT have to perish but so that we can be brought to life everlasting.
We need Jesus to change our hearts not quotes from an eastern mystic named Gandhi. Because in the end that is all that it is a quote from a guy called Gandhi. Not a genuine heart change from our Saviour named Jesus.
