What We Do For Others

What we have for ourselves alone dies with us; what we4 have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Thought to be by Albert Pike

My thoughts:

What kind of legacy do you want to leave?  Do you want to die and be forgotten because you did nothing for someone else or do you want to be forever remembered for your acts of love and compassion.  If we only do things to benefit ourselves our rewards will be “burned like chafe” but if we do things to benefit others we will live forever in the hearts and minds of the ones we leave behind.

Today, ask yourself a question.  Is the act going to benefit me only or will it benefit someone else too?:

Think about it.
