“Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.”
~ Helen Keller

“Give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
~ Luke 6:38

Time. Talent. Treasure.
Three valuable aspects of our lives.
What are we doing with them?

What’s stopping us from volunteering a few hours at a local non-profit, offering our services pro bono to a ministry or donating a portion of our paycheck to one of many charities in need of assistance around the world?

It’s up to each of us to assess how we spend our time, talent and treasure. But I’ve found that turning the focus off of myself and onto others makes life richer, satisfying and overwhelmingly wonderful.

Giving, sharing, making a difference. Living beyond ourselves.
