Give the World A Reason to Dance

"The world needs you to STOP BEING BORING...""You got a heartbeat? That means it’s time to do something!""We were made to be awesome!"

If you haven’t seen this video, then I highly highly HIGHLY encourage you to find 3 minutes sometime today to watch it. It’s called “A Pep Talk from Kid President to You.” But for me, it was more than a pep talk from a kid; it was a reminder of God’s promise to me – that my life is meaningful and eternally significant.

My favorite part of the video is when he says near the end, “It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”


Every now and then we need a reminder that our lives are meant to have meaning. We were meant to make a difference in the world – not just to exist, but to really live.  Jesus said “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).  


For discussion: I’d love to hear your thoughts on the video and what you thought about it.
