Everyone’s Favorite Radio Station: WII-FM: What’s in it for me?
I say change the channel!
Too often, those around us make decisions based on their own selfish motivations. Why do you think the world is in such a financial mess? Greed, deceit, and selfishness are at the center of this economic collapse. The mantra becomes, “if I don’t see a personal benefit, why do it?” Those who live only to please themselves perish and die alone!
Want Happiness? Seek to Help Others
The easiest, surest path to long lasting happiness is found in actively caring about and doing something for those around you: for your family, your church, your community, and the world. With so many challenges facing society, there is no shortage of needs. The old saying that “if you’re not a part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem” has some truth to it. God has designed you with special and unique qualities that can be used to make this world a better place–one day at a time.
I believe Albert Einstein said it best: “The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look at it without doing anything.”
With that in mind:
1. How can you better help others around you? What’s holding you back? What would need to happen for you to take action?
2. What is one thing I could do today to make someone else’s burden lighter, or bring a genuine smile to someone’s face? Can I commit to doing this today?
