There’s no point to living life unless you make history . . . and the best way to make history is to help others. (Ben Platt, American actor)

It’s not surprising, perhaps, that an actor would seek to make history. He may wish to win an Oscar or perform so well that he is acclaimed worldwide for his Thespian skills. Yet, Platt notes how best to live a worthy and fruitful life: “help others.” Rather than seek fame the really accomplished person will be engaged, and be noted for, his service to his fellow men.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms (1 Peter 4:10). Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25).
