Life creates meaning for you when you reach out to others. In rough times, our natural instinct advises to stay inside and mentally torture ourselves with pain, guilt and anxiety. Now more than ever people want to connect with their fellow man. We were created for unity. We were created for community. We were created to reach out and help one another.
In better times, our focus has been diverted inward and the concerns of another man’s problem has been far from our minds. As financial downturns loom, gas prices skyrocket and violence escalate — communities are starting to reunite. People are looking outward instead of inward. Help is replacing hurt. Giving is replacing greed. Promise is replacing poverty.
How are you reaching out today?
