Others II

Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves. (Horace Mann, 19th century educational reformer)

“I’ll do it my way,” the singer says. “I have my rights,” the activist argues. It probably all started with “Me first” in pre-school. Increasingly, people seem to be more and more self-centered. It’s no wonder that there’s so much discontent in modern society. Mann’s comment may be over-simplified, but it may be an accurate observation, worth considering as a solution.

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)
