I think I was in my twenties when I first learned that this life is not all about me. But oh how I can still get so wrapped up in my to do list or my concerns/worries for the day. My life is fuller when I prayerfully look for ways to encourage or bless others.
It might be checking in with a friend through text, making the time to call someone, or sending a little note or package. And even on my hard days, I have found it helpful to look for opportunities to do good.
Our world needs more love, more compassion and more kindness. God, help us to intentionally look for opportunities to reach out and bless others. Not for our glory, but Yours. Help us to keep looking up and to keep reaching out. Amen.
