Strive to be first: first to nod, first to smile, first to compliment and first to forgive.

— Unknown —

Simple but difficult.

I have found the best way to be the “first” as described above is by trying to be 3rd:

  1. God
  2. Others (not in a co-dependent manner but in a kind and helpful manner)
  3. Me

I’m still a work in progress…


Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you.  A 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.”  (ESV)
