The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. (Mahatma Gandhi, leader of India’s independence movement)
Today in America we honor the veterans who served in the military to protect our country and our freedom. Many of those men and women experienced great changes in their life’s purpose as they encountered multiple changes in their military careers. In those transforming years, they began to discover a new identity as they lost themselves in the service of their countrymen.
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:28)
