Somebody has to do it

Years ago, a writer named Anne O’Hare interviewed three world leaders: Hitler, Mussolini, and Roosevelt. She asked all three leaders the question, “How did you get where you are in the position of leadership you hold?” Mussolini puffed out his chest as he often did, and replied, “I came!” Hitler got a far-away look in his eye and said, “I was sent.” When she asked Roosevelt how he got to be president, he simply laughed and said, “Well, somebody had to do it!”

Let’s you and I be the “somebodies” (or even nobodies) who have to do it! Let’s be the people (God’s people) who see what good needs to be done and then do it!

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify God in heaven!”
(Matthew 5:16, nasb).
