As we loose ourselves in helping others, we put ourselves in a position to receive the maximum amount of personal help from God. The greatest service you can do is to reach out to help another person who is suffering. Our experiences have given us empathy and understanding to be a voice of good in this world. True joy comes from making a difference in the lives of others.

We might worry about the things we never get done and feel overwhelmed and under appreciated. In those moments it is helpful to remember, “You never know how much good you do.”
