A Sunday citation

One of the things that bothers me about how society teaches children to be educated and accomplished is that we kind of teach them to focus on themselves. Their attainments become all about them. So when I read this quote from Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow, I had to share it:

"One of the best things a young man or a young woman can have in view, in trying to be great, is to have others great also; and not mind spending a little time to improve others. The best way to improve ourselves is to exercise ourselves in doing good to others. Keep this in mind constantly." (Chap. 22, pg. 261)

  1. Very good point! I totally agree with you. The solution to self-absorption is service!
