"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."
"As a follower of Christ, serving isn't really an option. It's essential. If we are ever to live life with a capital L, we have to understand that true joy and fulfillment come only when we give out what we take in, and pass on to others what we have received...
"...I'm not talking about material things. I'm talking about giving of yourself, your time, and your talents, just for the joy of knowing it was you were created to do...
"...That's how God works. He has things he wants us to do and places he wants us to serve, but it's not really about us. It's about him working through us to accomplish his plans. When we understand that, fulfillment comes, because we become part of a larger picture, a greater role. We start to see how our little piece fits into the grand puzzle of life."
