I realized something today.
It was an "ah-hah" moment when I figured out what had been going on.
I witnessed someone being very unselfish at a time when they were in great personal need.
Not understanding at first what was really happening, it did not occur to me until later how this person had set aside their need in order to give to another’s—-my own.
When the true realization of it came to me, I felt love and compassion for them.
When people set their own needs aside in order to minister to others’ needs, doesn’t it bring forth an abundance of gratefulness and tender emotions?
Today, it actually made me want to give to them in their need, even more.
Like beautiful flowers springing up in vivid colors, those who give of themselves unselfishly brighten the world with the light of God’s love.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
