A life not lived for others is not a life. (Mother Teresa)

That’s a hard saying, isn’t it? Many of us have been raised in an environment where we are taught to look out for ourselves first, and to beware of others lest they take advantage of us. That kind of life outlook, however, makes you defensive and wary of anyone who wants to get close to you. Living for the benefit of others, however, leads to a life of joy and fulfillment.

Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25)
