Help Others

There is a section in all bookstores titled, "Self-Help." Imagine what the world would be like if there was a section titled, "Help Others"?

— Simon Sinek —

I saw the opening quote by Simon Sinek the day after I read an article about people who pay money in order to boost the number of followers they have on social media.

We live in a very self-absorbed world.

Our world and the people who live in it, (you and I), post over 90 million selfies each day. If you are in the minority and do not know what “posting a selfie” is, it is when a person takes a picture of her or himself and posts it on the world wide web usually through social media.

The devil has done a marvelous job of getting us to focus on ourselves through the use of social media. Even when people do good deeds for others, they are posting it on their social media accounts.

You could chalk this post up to me simply being a grumpy old man, but this old man has lived long enough to know when we shine the spotlight on ourselves, there’s little light to shine on those who need it the most.

Challenge yourself to spend a week looking out for the interest of others without telling a soul…that’s what living for God is all about.

Philippians 2:4, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.”
