The Smallest Act

The smallest act in the most limited circumstances bears the seed of boundlessness, because one deed, and sometimes one word, suffices to change every constellation. — Hannah Arendt.

We can’t all be Elon Musk where we create a successful automobile company, fly rockets into outer space, and accumulate billions. But Hannah’s words above tell us that one simple good deed, one simple kind word, may change the universe.

Do you believe this? I do. There is too much evidence and instances where random kindness whether it be in words or action has saved lives, changed the future, and made the world a better place.

God didn’t design a world where everyone can be a huge success, but he did design a world where each individual by a single act can plant a seed that changes the universe. Consider that every day you have the potential to make a better world and all it takes is the smallest act.
