more good stuff from the book I'm reading.
"We underestimate the influence we have. A person who is truly influential possesses the ability to affect the long term decisions and quality of life of others. they have the capacity to produce lasting change in the hearts and behavior of people. Only God has all the information necessary to evaluate true influence and impact. influence is usually released with a whisper. its power lies not in volume but in consistency or sincerity. we are impacted most by people who walk out their commitments with daily consistency. this approach to life is valued by God, and is called faithfulness and operates in meekness."
