STOP AND THINK – He could have added fortune to fame, but caring for neither, he found happiness and honor in being helpful to the world. (Epitaph on George Washington Carver’s grave)

Carver was born into slavery in the mid 19th century but became a noted American botanist and inventor before his death in the mid 20th century. His story is a prime example of one who dedicated himself to learning and enriching the lives of others. His discoveries have benefitted society in many valuable ways. Are we finding our joy in doing good for others?

Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25). No one should seek their own good, but the good of others (1 Corinthians 10:24).
