Over the Hump 04/25/2018

This author, being interested in shoe collection for charities, ran across an article of interest... As Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it, as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track, to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so, Gandhi smiled. " The poor man who finds the shoe lying on the on the track," he replied, "will now have pair of shoes he can use.” 

This is an example of what Victor Frankel talks about in his book "MANS SEARCH FOR MEANING”. Mankind discovers meaning in life by serving others.

Does that sound too simple? It is simple and many of religions of the world espouse this principle. One of Paul's letters describes it this way. "Count others more worthy than your self" 

Remember how you felt the last time you did something for someone else.

 

Faithfully,

Charlie
