The Needs Of Others
I was told a story once about a man who had a dream about hell. Everyone was at a large banquet surrounded by delicious food. But they were starving. Their utensils were chopsticks that were 3 feet long and they could not feed themselves. In the dream he then traveled to Heaven, where a feast was set out, with the same long chopsticks but everyone was full and happy. He asked "How do you eat here?" and someone said "we feed each other." So often we look out for ourselves so much, we are blind to the needs of others. Let's make a purposed effort to be on the lookout for the needs of others this week!
