Sunday Saying

"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
- Muhammad Ali

We are all here on Earth and it is our obligation to give something through service. That might be through doing our part in conservation, or by helping the poor, or even just teaching our children well so that they grow up to be compassionate people. In order for us as a people to go on living we need to be giving, not always taking what we want. If everyone just took and took and took, resources would quickly be depleted, crime would flourish, and war and destruction would be inevitable. But by giving of ourselves we help maintain order and peace. By taking care of the planet we insure that it can continue to care for us, by helping those around us we create love and caring that keep us from constantly fighting, and by giving ourselves as teachers and examples for our children we ensure that future generations will continue to give.
