it's not all about me after all...

General William Booth sent a one-word telegram.

The key to the greatest life on this planet.


We have to focus our life on others.

I do not know what your destiny will be. You will only be fully fulfilled when you serve others. Albert Schweitzer

What can I do.
How can I serve.
What can I do for YOU.

Our old way: The more I get the more I got.

The Jesus Way: The more I give the more I got. And the more you got for eternity.

Philippians 2:5-8
Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn't think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn't claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.
