And all in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them. (Luke 6:19 NRSV)
In a cartoon by Charles Schulz, Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she's decided to begin a new hobby. Charlie Brown commends her decision, saying how important it is to accomplish something meaningful with your life. In response Lucy says something like this, "Accomplish something? I thought all we were supposed to do was keep busy!"

There are many of us who are keeping very busy, but we are not accomplishing very much. We are like the proverbial octopus on roller skates. We are here, then we are there, ultimately we are all over the place, but we are not getting anywhere specific. We pursue many pleasures, but find little that brings us lasting happiness.

The greatest pleasure we can have is touching a life with God's great love.

Dear God, help me to touch a life today. Amen.
