What will your obituary say about you? Will it say, "He really knew the meaning of charity."? Would it be more accurate if it said something like, "Her favorite thing was to spend hours sitting in front of the tv."?
We are all in the process of writing our obituaries. Are we writing about true love and kindness? Are we detailing about selflessly serving and giving? Make a difference in the life of another, and do it over and over again, not for glory sake, but the sake of creating a purpose in your life.
Remember, every one dies, but not every one really lives.
