    Affirm Others

    Successful people have a tendency to help those coming up behind them. After surveying what success we have made, it is easy to recall our beginnings. This evokes a stronger desire to help others on their way to their goal. Now is the time to encourage those whom we encounter daily. Casual suggestions are usually in order to our ambitious friends. Only once in a while are we asked to share our wealth. There will be an internal urge to verify the sincerity of the financial assistance. Mostly, we are called to authenticate who they are and/or to pump up their enthusiasm. Sometimes we are called to lift their sagging spirits. God endows all of us with tremendous potential. Whoever thought a slow talking Abraham Lincoln from the little town of New Salem, IL would ever be President of the United States. Or that little Alva Edison who was kicked out of school would give us such a multitude of great inventions.

    In helping others, there is a possibility of making a dramatic difference in someone’s life. It might be the difference between their poverty and success. If we can help somebody, life will be worth living. Our life will not be in vain.
