I am preparing for a message today and keep thinking about Jared, Tim’s friend.  It just so happens his parents attended childbirth classes I taught at the hospital and I helped deliver him.  I’m grateful for our connection. No one would have guessed that his life would be a short 20 years.  And in the last four years of his life,  Jared made an intentional impact wherever he went, whatever he did with energy and passion for Christ.

The word, “impact,” defined Jared‘s radical life, the kind of life that is described in  Galatians 2:20: “Not I, but Christ.”

Don’t settle for less. Impact the world for Christ.

It matters–Kerrie
