OBSERVATION: Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. – Marian Wright Edelman

Though we  should engage in service to others, charity and active helping because of the joy and self-satisfaction it brings us, Marian Edelman Wright’s insight (often erroneously attributed to Muhammad Ali) tells us there is also a duty to serve. Successful television producer and founder of People for the American Way Norman Lear said, “It seems to me that any full-grown, mature adult would have a desire to be responsible, to help where he can in a world that needs so very much, that threatens us so very much.”

Remember, you don’t have to be a full time missionary or social activist to serve. Just do something to make the world a little better.
