Another Poem

One of my great discoveries in life was when I spent my day making life better for someone else, it was always a good day—and when I spent my day trying to make life better for me, I went to bed wondering if I’d really accomplished anything valuable at all. We were made for God, and it seems He made us for others.

Lord, help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way

That even when I kneel to pray,
My prayer shall be for others.
Help me in all the things I do,
To ever be sincerely true,
And know that all I do for you
Must needs be done for others.
Others, Lord, yes others,
Let this, my motto be;
Help me to live for others,
That I might live for thee.

Discover a great day.
