In the words of the great Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“Darkness can’t drive out darkness.
Only Light can do that.”
There is so much darkness in certain people.
So full of hate, violence, and corruption.
They use and abuse others for their selfish aims.
Only faith and giving can drive out selfishness!
The other day at work, I briefly stopped over to help a colleague with something (I thought it was pretty minor, honestly).
The next thing I know, another colleague who observed me, leaves — literally — a gold star on my desk.
I had to laugh to myself — isn’t this what we do with kids.
And then I thought to myself — Wow! People at any age can be recognized for just being decent human beings with one another.
Rather than just recognize the latest work accomplishments, isn’t it truly something to recognize helping others.
Being good people is the essence of what life is all about.
I’m glad that there are still people in the world that know this. ;-)
