service

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, gospel, service, forgiveness, anger, love, people, world, and gratitude

We cannot serve anyone with whom we have animosity.  This is why the Gospels stress forgiveness.  Our Lord even forgave those who crucified Him, crying out from the cross, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34)  If we are to serve the world, we must first be able to forgive everyone and anyone.  The slightest amount of unforgiveness or anger towards anyone is enough to keep us from God, for in God there is only love.

A Quote by Lateef Terrell Warnick on life, love, light, wisdom, prosperity, laughter, happiness, joy, treasure, self, and service

The greatest life one can have is of service. Give joy, happiness, bliss, laughter, wisdom, prosperity, love & light to others. By doing so, you tap into the Infinite Source within ensuring that you will never have to do without these "treasures" yourself!

A Quote by St. Nicolai Vilimirovich on god, gratitude, sacrifice, spirituality, poetry, thanksgiving, debts, service, giving, and love

Render sacrifice to God; a sacrifice of gratitude,
O you wealthy ones; according to God's mercy!
Who is wealthy and with what; with that let him barter,
Everyone with his gift; let him, the Kingdom acquire.
Whoever is wealthy with money; let him money, offer,
Whoever is rich with wheat; wheat let him distribute,
To whom wisdom is given; others, let him teach,
To him whose hands are strong; let him perform service.
Whoever knows a trade; let him honorably uphold it,
Let him conscientiously consider himself as a debtor of God.
Let him, who knows how to sing; praise God,
Only he is small, who does not know God.
Whoever received what; with that let him serve,
With mercy toward men; let him repay God,
Not all are the same, nor do all possess the same,
But a pure heart, everyone could give to God.
O pureness of heart, a sacrifice most miraculous,
For salvation, you are the crucial virtue,
And on your sacrificial altar, your incense ascends,
Arrives before the Lord, faster than anything.

Nicolai Vilimirovich

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, service, true spirituality, truth, freedom, enlightenment, love, joy, and peace

All of us have been called to serve God. We do this in our families, our parishes and our secular jobs. We serve God when we serve one another. Our acts of kindness and generosity, our prayers for our loved ones and our enemies, are all offerings to God which He receives from us and uses for the benefit of all mankind.
 

Your Father in Christ,

A Quote by David Simon on healing, awakening, love, service, and purpose

Healing from our past is an essential aspect of expanding our sense of self and awakening our capacity to love. This shift often manifests as a change in the questions we've been asking ourselves. Instead of What do I need? we ask, How can I serve? Instead of What am I getting out of this? we start to ask, What can I bring to this situation to promote the highest possible outcome for everyone involved?

A Quote by Albert Einstein on life, purpose, journey, interdependence, and service

How strange is the lot of us mortals!  Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it.  But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people - first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies are bound by the ties of sympathy.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on purpose, life, happiness, honor, compassion, meaning, usefulness, and service

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
