When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. 4 Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others. Philippians 2:3-4
Many of you may have noticed that although the sun is out and the temperature is crisp, it’s anything but clear. There seems to be a haze, like when it’s hot and humid, and that’s because it is. Although we live on the East Coast, we are being affected by the wild fires in California. That’s correct, I learned from Matt Broderick the weatherman on wfmz, that the haziness we’re seeing is from the smoke in California.
Now we don’t have to worry about it’s health impact because the smoke is above 30,000 feet, but we are feeling and seeing its affects. To me that information was impactful and actually almost unbelievable, but undeniable. It made me think about how our thoughts, behaviors and actions might seem personal and affecting a small portion. But as just as the smoke has traveled from coast to coast our choices make a great impact in more ways than we could ever imagine.
I don’t know about you, but if we can see and feel the negative impact of others in such a great way over the past year, how much more should we make positive ones.
