A teacher was encouraging his class to be kind and think of the needs of the people around them. "Remember, kids, you were put here to help others."
"But," protested one of the students, "what were the others put here for?"
Where would we be if no one helped us? What if no one taught us to read or write or do arithmetic?
Sometimes we forget to think about all of the help that others have given us and focus only on ourselves. It is hard to imagine where we would be if no one had ever helped us.
So, if we have been helped, should we not also do the same for others? We need to have a goal that reminds us to help everyone we can.
As we seek to help others, God will help us. May we never forget that every time we help pull someone uphill, we will find ourselves getting closer to the top.
Just for today, rather than pointing a finger at someone, hold out a helping hand.
