To fix, to help, to serveMay 20, 2012

Is our job to fix, to help, or to serve?

Serving is different than fixing. In fixing, we see others as broken. When we serve, we see and trust the wholeness in another, helping to strengthen them.

Our penchant for fixing and helping can get in the way of allowing other people to discover their life, or of discovering our own. We force ourselves on other people, in ways that may not actually work.

Love, serve, remember.
