Extending Ourselves for Others
- 2018 7 Jun
One of my favorite authors, Scott Peck, described love as “extending ourselves for the welfare of another.” I think about this quote every day, attempting to find ways to meet the needs of those whom I love. Consider your circle of loved ones. Do you extend yourself for their well-being? Do you reach beyond your comfort zone to help them feel better about their life and situation? This is love being played out in your life.
