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.

Daily Inspiration

"There is no such thing as a race of people anywhere on the entire planet who cannot be saved if they acknowledge God and live good lives. The Lord redeems all such people. We are all born spiritual by nature and therefore we all have a capacity for receiving the gift of redemption."
