What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other? (Mary Ann Evans, 19th century author whose pen name was George Eliot)

Is this 1800s sentiment still valid for people today? It no doubt should be, but we don’t see much of it in the news. From government officials to “the man on the street,” everyone seems to be interested only in what is good for them and will make life easier. For a clear and valued contribution to society today, a worthy goal would be “to make life less difficult” for others.

Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others (Titus 3:14).
