My Hope Is Still To Leave The World A Bit Better Than When I Got Here - Jim Henson

Leave Things Better


Brandy, Addy, and Grace,

“My hope is still to leave the world a bit better than when I got here.” – Jim Henson

The world is a mess right now, but it’s been that way for a long time… since about third chapter of Genesis if you are willing to believe in The Bible, but I really don’t think it’s any worse today than it has been – it’s just more obvious and louder than ever before, thanks to the sensationalism we call news and social media posts. In fact, I would say it’s probably a lot better right now than during the Roman and Greek empires, the dark ages, the crusades, and other eras of brutality. However, that is little comfort today for those affected by the selfish pursuit of prestige, power, and possessions – the devastation is all around us. It looks a little different in everyone’s life, but the need for healing and love is all the same.

My Girls, I Hope and Pray that one of the ways I leave this world a better place is how I showed you how to Love those around you by being God’s Hands, Feet, and Mouth to those in need. I hope you will take my example and allow God to transform this world through you each and every day.

Challenge Question: What can you do to improve the world around you TODAY?

God’s Word:  Galatians 6:9-10, 1st Corinthians 15:58, and Proverbs 3:27

  1. Hi Jesse,

    So my son started his freshman year of High school this week. I have been thinking of new and fresh ways of talking to him about life and the issues that come our way and infusing God’s word at the same time. Well, needless to say, your little post-it notes are the answer to my question. I will be using them over the next several years to connect with him on a deeper level and showing him God’s word is sufficient for every area of a Christians life. Thank you for this resource, I am grateful to have this for such a time as this!

    Your Fellow Servant,
    Jason Bruch
