The secret of a fulfilling and fruitful life is living a life of selfless service. “Give and it shall be given” is the life principle that guarantees that “you reap what you sow.”
Selfish self centeredness is a life-style path to bitterness, loneliness, and depression. Selfless service is the path to contentment, friendships, and vision for your future.
Christians are called to serve. They are blessed to be a blessing and promised increase to be able to give more. They are given the heart of God to reach the lost and to serve humanity, especially their fellow Christians.
You will succeed to the degree that you help others succeed. Investing in others is investing in your future. Serving others is what it means to be Christ like.
