The dominant narrative, the one we hear and tell ourselves, is that we don’t have enough.
Not enough time, not enough education, not enough energy, not enough money.
And so we spend our time trying to get more of these things.
Something happens though, when instead of looking at what we don’t have, we look for what we can give. Giving and serving have a way of clarifying our perspective. They orient us and help us see things as they really are.
When we choose to give, we realize that we have more than enough.
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
