Start With A Smile

Others First

This past weekend the death of one student at a local high school affected the lives of many others.

One student said in class “I wish I had picked something up.”

It is that vein and spirit that Paul wrote to his community in Philippi centuries ago “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Philippians 2:4

Becoming more unselfish begins with the decision to stop thinking about ourself so much and start looking for ways to help others.

Put ourself in situations where people have needs.

Are there rewards and risks?

Yes

The reward of a saved life supersedes all else.

The risks of rejection, being misunderstood, or making a mistake also play a part.

However, the benefit of a saved life supersedes all else.

This requires putting ourself in a position where we can see a person’s need and do something about it.

In other words, get involved!

This may start with a simple smile — check out this article —
