Not For Praise or Glory

Each day presents new opportunities to make ourselves and our world better. We should live into these opportunities not for praise or glory, but just to give expression to the virtue that is inherent in that particular desire itself. To give of ourselves in ways that lifts others up is innately fulfilling. To shine a light in the dark spaces around us, is to make our own journeys a little less precarious. There is a certain wisdom in not seeking the limelight that so many others crave. It is the same wisdom that counsels us to the effect that "it is more blessed to give than to receive". Let us give the best of ourselves each day knowing that by doing so we enrich our own lives in ways that no amount of praise or money can.
