Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”

 Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”  Martin Luther King Jr.
Everybody wants to have a good life. A great job, successful career and business. Some people are living comfortably and everything is served on a silver platter. They spend millions on luxury cars,  mansions, they get huge paychecks. Life is so easy for them and in spite of having all the expensive things,  they still want more.. I think that’s a normal thought of  a human being..the more we have, the more we want.
For an ordinary people, having three meals and a roof over their head  is what define a good life but for those unfortunate.. “oh i wish there is no struggle”.. they’re missing the vital things in life and for them everyday  is an ultimate battle.
 We encounter people who is in dire need everyday, children are starving on the streets…homeless people begging for help .. etc. Somehow, sometimes it is our moral duty to give what we can to reach for them wholeheartedly. Although we are not forced to do it, but we can do something to give them the essentials to survive.Make a choice! 
People complain a lot especially on things that don’t really matter, that’s how we live in this imperfect world.  And today, while browsing my facebook account,  I’ve read some friend’s wall post  that says, ” geez..NO power.. no internet connection.. wifi is bad.. feeling annoyed…etc..etc..I have nothing against them, i do complain too but it gave me a thought..”we should count our blessings before we complain”
 
If we could try to compare our life to others even if things aren’t perfect..it will give us a different perspective. Remember. Each time we complain there are people suffering who wishes the kind of life we have.  THINK ABOUT IT!
 Here’s the reality: Deuteronomy 15:11
“For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land..  So, if you have the chance to help someone in need. don’t give it a second thought, it could make a such a big difference.. but if you can’t.. at least..BE KIND and gain some smile from others..

And here’s a reminder how blessed we all are
