Thought For the Day: Serve Others

“The vocation of every man and woman is to serve other people.”  – Leo Tolstoy, in What Is To Be Done? (1886)

While there is certainly a lot that I disagree with Tolstoy on, there is this in common.  I believe we are here to love and serve one another, especially those nearest and dearest to us.  Isn’t that the essence of true Cross talk and the example set by Jesus?
