One extra degree can make all the difference. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train.
One degree. Applying one extra degree of temperature to water means the difference between something that's simply very hot and something that generates enough force to power a machine - a beautifully uncomplicated metaphor that ideally should feed everything we do.
We don't realize that the small things do make a differences in a big way! So take time out and encourage one another just a little bit more. I was inspired by this metaphor and hope that it will in turn inspire you.
Peace and love always.
