A little change here, a little change there…

…and soon you might be looking at something substantial.

Suvir Mirchandani is a 14 year old boy from near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He has found a way for the US Government to save $136 million a year.  By changing fonts.

Mirchandani found that if the Government Printing Office changed to the Garamond font for all their printing, they would save this amount of money.

$136 million is a lot of money to you and me, but, admittedly, it is chump change on the scale of the dollars the Federal Government deals with.

I am less interested in entering a debate about government spending than I am in you and I grasping the value of available for our lives.  What may seem like a small change can actually add up to something rather significant.

During this season of Lent, what small change are you willing to make in your life that might become a significant improvement in your following of Jesus?

If it is a small change you are willing to share, please share it here: I an quite sure someone else can learn from your introspection.
