If you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, she's pretty awesome. Today she launched a new line in which she partnered with Glory Haus to create beautiful jewelry (as well as a few other items) that are made by women in the US who have come from vulnerable situations. And here's why I'm excited about it. Jen has a platform, and she has chosen to use what she has to raise awareness and create jobs that allow women to rise out of their situations.
My hope for you is that as you begin to realize the platform you have and the resources that are yours to use, that your focus would be on raising up the women around you - whether they be mothers or daughters, or neighbors or strangers.
Now, I don't know what you're thinking, but I know what I used to think when I would read something like that. Literally, my thoughts would be "But I don't have... (that size of platform, that amount of money, that... you get it)." But here's what's cool. Luke 16:10 says “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities." Now the thing that I want to focus on is this: The way we act with whatever we have in our hand today will be how we would act if that amount was multiplied. That's huge.
It's when our platform is small that we build our character for when it's large. It's when our finances are small that we build our habits for when they're big. It's the decisions that we make when we aren't sure if they'll make a difference that help set us up to make good decisions when we know they'll make a difference.
So today, what decisions can you make in faith that will set you up for the type of person you want to be in the future? And for a little inspiration, take a look at this video from Jen Hatmaker's partnership with Glory Haus:
