Serving others does not have to be hard, in fact it is often simple. When we serve those who need us, we are actually serving God.
The purpose of your time on earth is not primarily about acquiring possessions, attaining status, achieving success, or even experiencing happiness. Those are secondary issues. Life is all about love with God & with other people. You may succeed in many areas, but if you fail to learn how to love God & love others, you’ll have missed the reason why God created you.
