Be a lighthouse……….let your life be a shining symbol for others. While we will all experience challenging times at some point in our life…..we will overcome them through the support and love that comes from our friends and family. We all know someone who seems to be able to lift us up, help us dust ourselves off, and then remind us that tomorrow is another day. The best way that we can give back is to be a “lighthouse” for those who lose their way in life.
As we walk through our days we must be on the lookout for lost souls. Be alert to those in need, guide a child, provide companionship to an elder, serve in some meaningful way in our community, and most importantly lead by example in everything that we do. Life can be unthinkably cruel and lonely if you try to do it by yourself and selfishness is a fire that consumes others and then self. A true servant helps other people become motivated by guiding them to their gifts, callings, talents, and strengths. If life has been good to you then all the more reason to share your gifts, your light, and your love with those who may need the service of a gentle servant. Be that person when you can…….
Woodrow Wilson said “You are here not merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget that errand.”
