So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil andwine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, andtook care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out twodenarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care ofhim; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repayyou’.”Luke 10:34-35It’s been said that we make a living by what we get, but we makea life by what we give. Helping others is something you can startdoing today, whether it’s spending more time with your family,developing an employee who shows potential, helping people inthe community, or putting your own desires on hold to benefityour team. The key is to find your purpose and help others while you’repursuing it. As entertainer Danny Thomas said: “All of us areborn for a reason, but all of us don’t discover why. Success in lifehas nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish foryourself. It’s what you do for others.” The apostle Paul states, “I have shewed you all things, howthat so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to rememberthe words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed togive than to receive.” (Acts 20:35/KJV). The apostle Paul prays, “Now may He who supplies seed to thesower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you havesown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgivingthrough us to God.
