What's the point of selfishness? Sometimes our initial reaction, when asked to give our time and resources, is to withhold. I try to stop and ask myself why? Usually, it's because I want to keep those things for myself, but while that may feel good at the moment, it also feels unproductive and fleeting. Self-focus feels lonely and isolated like a rich man sequestered in his house all alone. Other-focus choices feel liberating and bring new life. Jesus said, "he who loses his life will find it." If I give an hour of my time will I not find I have been blessed? Will I not find that in building up others, my own life has benefited as well? If you act selflessly, will not that kindness one day be returned to you?
