Change the world
I love this quote. If you feel bad for someone, do something about it. If you want to help the world, help your mom or your little brother. If you wish you were a superhero, try saving the kid getting bullied at your school.
Compassion is important but Christ's compassion requires actions. When Christ had compassion on us, He sent his only son into the world to die for us. He gave us things like the Bible, prophets, and the Holy Spirit to guide us when we were feeling alone.
If we truly care, we will do something to show we care. Actions mean more than words. In this day of age, it is easy to have good intentions and feel bad for someone while totally ignoring their situation and being of no help at all. This is wrong- it's the opposite of what Christ did for us.
When we see a need, it's our job to act. Christ says that this is what following Him is all about- helping others. Helping others means changing lives one at a time. We can only change others' lives and change the world if we change ourselves so that we are following God in our hearts and in our actions.
