In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Yes, if you have paid attention, the verse above is the same as last week. Why? Well because these few words continue to shout aloud in my soul. This has been a resounding anthem if you will; in my life the past several weeks. Adding value to other people. As I sat on a beach in Jamaica this past week on a much needed vacation between naps and great food, I was also reading a book. In this book one of the excerpts said this, "His favor (Jesus) is upon you so you can be apart of His plan of distributing favor to others".
You see, when you add value to others, you leave a legacy. Like the disciples, the apostle Paul, and so many of the early church of Jesus Christ. They left us a road map and inspiration. Albert Pike wrote, "What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal".
Continue to ask yourself this week, "how can I add value to those around me"? Jesus is calling all of us to do this very thing. Mark 12:30-31 "Love your neighbor as yourself". Step out of your comfort zone this week. Reach out and help someone in need. This is one of the truest forms of worship to our king.
