AL Inspiring Quote on Giving 3

“Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” John F. Kennedy

I love this quote. Although it talks about citizens and their country, it applies to all areas of life: from relationship to work to wealth to happiness. I love this quote because it summarizes the whole idea of giving first; of being of service first; of planting the seeds first. But isn’t true that we tend to do the opposite? We want to receive first, we want to be taken care of first, we want to be loved first, we want to reap first? The interesting thing is, when we serve first, when we love first, when we give first, the whole life flows in a completely different way.
