Just One — Stimulate

“Love” or “hate.”

“Careful” or “careless.”

“Wisely chosen” or “poorly chosen”

Reading the headlines of articles these days, it seems to me that we are a race of “either or” persons.

Difference leads to disagreement to disparagement to division to disruption to a death..

All suffer and none benefit.

YET

In physics one little pebble can cause a landslide.

In courts one simple point can win a case.

In relationships two simple words “I’m sorry” or “you’re forgiven” can turn the tide.

Such actions can stimulate. A stimulus can change things.

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the noun stimulus means “something that causes something else to happen, develop, or become more active, something that causes a change or a reaction.”

As Paul wrote centuries to a divided and disheartened community in Rome “Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10:24 nasb

Most automobiles are equipped with a catalytic converter, which transforms dangerous pollutants into less harmful compounds. The secret to this device is the catalyst it contains. This substance makes that chemical transformation possible.

Our words of comfort, wisdom, care and … can be that catalyst.

A ray of sunlight brightens a face, causing a smile to grow; warms a plant, causing it to grow.
