Looking to the Needs of Others

Love thyself last. Look near, behold thy duty to those who walk beside thee down life's road. Make glad their days by little acts of beauty and help them bear the burden of earth's load. ~Wilcox

Isn't this what mother's and wives do? I think so. We walk down life's road beside our husband and children hopefully making their days glad with little acts of kindness, love, beauty. We help them carry their burdens, through listening and prayer. What a great blessing we have been given to be a servant like our Lord Jesus.

"Let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others." (Philippians 2:3-4)

"If I then your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet" (John 13:14).

~R. J. Finley
