A Loftier Ambition

I used to always use the “Golden Rule” in my classroom as a starting point for treating others.  “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Now I believe there is something more. 
“Do for others what they can’t do for themselves.”

You have been given unique talents and gifts so it becomes important for you to use those to lift others up and help them get to places they cannot get to on their own.

I believe that what we give away to others we get back in return and it is returned in abundance.  It is not given for the return but as a heart felt gift.  The return is a bonus.

Whether you have alot to give or just a little you have the ability and the opportunity to help someone do what they can’t do for themselves.  The important thing is that you give.

Lift someone higher today. 

I’m cheering for you.
