Like a pebble dropping into a lake, an Instagram post can ripple into the distance. You never know who’s watching or where something might go.
Then a coworker/friend of mine saw it and invited me to be a part of a morning worship time he was co-leading for staff and students of another local ministry. Their theme that day was brokenness so he asked me to prepare and lead the same activity with about 28 adults. So I did. And that was it.
Then I heard that someone there that morning used their experience later in the day to connect and share with some Japanese students they were working with. They all looked up Kintsugi and talked about brokenness and being rebuilt. And that was it.
Until weeks later when I heard how someone else saw my Instagram post and used my it as inspiration to share about brokenness and God rebuilding us as part of a Bible study he co-leads. And that was it.
Shared once. Then twice by me. And at least two other times by others. Who else was inspired and adapted this idea? Where did it ripple next? Where is it rippling right now? Only God knows. It might not be a viral post but it is rippling on.
What are you doing and sharing that can have a ripple effect?
