With 24/7 access to information, and limited time to figure out what it all means, it’s easy to become consumed with “us”: our finances, our family, our jobs, our business, our future. Growing debt, shrinking assets.
So, when everything gets a little noisy, and the focus on ourselves a little tedious, remember the words of 19th Century Scottish evangelist Henry Drummond:
“You will find, as you look back on your life, that the moments that stand out are the moments when you have done things for others.”
This is where the smart money is going: a new backpack for a child’s first day of school; being able to stay in your home; cool in the summer, heat in the winter, lights on every day; a prescription refilled, dental care, a ride to the doctor’s office; tips and support in finding a job.
Donations to Community Lifeline Center make these services, and others, possible.
So, as you try to manage the uncertainty of life think about what Henry Drummond said, and think about the return on investment in hope for those in need. The smart money: Wall Street? How about Kentucky Street!
