Strive to do “something!”
Whether you are one of the healthiest people around, young or old, able-bodied or not, we all have dreams and aspirations that we set for ourselves. Be it monetary, education, employment, marriage-whatever- we all want to succeed in life.
Often time’s people tend to set limitations on themselves and especially those with disabilities. We all need to set goals in our lives and pursue them with vigor. Literally anyone can sit around and do nothing. It takes no talent or ambition. Anyone can feel sorry for themselves. In doing so you gain nothing and waste precious time that can never be retrieved.
With that said, how about setting the simple goal of being an encourager? When your heart is set on helping others you are not only enabling and encouraging them to pursue their dreams but you are setting yourself up to be blessed! In doing this, you are administering the “Golden Rule” in Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you…”
Let’s all add one more goal to that list of aspirations-be an encourager! You will feel better. They will feel better. You will be pleasing God and fulfilling one of his commands. Give it a shot- be an encourager!
