The blessings that come from opening our arms to others
are among the choicest this earth has to offer.
Helping others can make us happier.
The principle is clear:
We harvest in proportion to our planting.
Let us not even think about
Let us think ourselves into another person’s shoes.
Generous people give both financially and of themselves,
in a way that benefits the recipient. Their gifts may include
time, money, things, and encouragement.
Generous people are also able to receive in such a way that
the giver gains from the interchange. Their actions are
motivated by the needs of others, and not of themselves.
It’s Sunday night, the doors are locked, the lights are off,
and the parking lot is empty. Now, the rescued sinners are
done for another week... WRONG!
Church is NOT a building. Church is a people.
Rather than Church being a Sunday thing...
church should be our lifestyle.
Every student, ambassador, and disciple should be
carrying the mission of God into every sphere of life.
We should be going beyond the walls of the church
sharing the Good News of the Kingdom with others!
We could share Divine Truths about happiness.
How to Love, and realize Peace,
Freedom, Safety, Intelligence, Respect,
Equality, Justice, and how to see and appreciate
God's mastery all over Nature!
Let us not ignore or try to escape the suffering
of the world.
The Gospel brings us to life
and asks us to press into the city where we live
and be the light.
The Gospel invites us to step into places of injustice
as people of righteousness.
Shine your light so bright
that it drowns out the darkness.
Look for ways to be a blessing to somebody.
Your struggles have prepared you for such a time as this.
We can be the one to set the tone
by breathing positivity into the environment.
We can diffuse gossip and complaining
by speaking life and truth...
even when it is not popular.
We can walk tall, sit tall, and stand tall...
even when the world around us is swirling.
We can look people in the eyes and speak to the soul.
We can empathize and restrain judgement on others.
We can be present with others and listen more.
We can smile and inspire/encourage a stranger...
and make their day better.
We can pray for people
and choose to be a blessing despite
our own circumstances.
Helping others out of LOVE
is always our best option.
We should not be merely an influence,
we should be an inspiration.
By our very own presence we should be
a tower of strength
to the hungering souls around us...
even when no one is watching.
Far too often, some have embraced a pronounced
Some are guilty of de-humanizing and de-personalizing
those who are from different stations in life.
These divisions provide the necessary rationalization
They spawn and perpetuate
classes of lower and undesirables and
make it very possible for great atrocities to take place.
Their positions are based on another's money,
class, education, upbringing, and basically...
all of the superficial aspects.
We should cultivate a mentality in which we see ourselves
not as transients residing
in an ivory tower,
but as God-fearing souls,
seeking first the Kingdom of God
while having this human experience.
To help the poor is to honor God.
Respect is the most basic social standard,
from which all other basic social standards can be derived.
