Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


The Difference Makes the Difference
by Charles R. Swindoll


By this all men will know 
that you are My disciples, 
if you have love for one another. 
John 13:35


If our message is a mirror image of the message of the world, the world yawns and goes on its way, saying, "What else is new? I've heard all that since I was born." But if the Christian lifestyle and motivation and answers are different, the world cannot help but sit up and take notice, thinking:

How is it that I cannot conquer this habit but he has?

Why is their love so deep and lasting and ours so shallow and fickle?

How is it that she can forgive and never hold a grudge, but I can't get over a wrong? Talk about kindness and courtesy! These people exude those things. I wonder why. 

I've never seen such integrity. The guy wouldn't think of taking a dime that isn't his.

Do you get the message? It is the difference that makes the difference.
