Recall in a way you can't grasp now

Along the same lines as yesterday, this quote from the Bible has brought me comfort today.

“Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.”

Ever since I can remember I wanted to make a difference in the world... "Save the Rainforest" etc. But when it came to the people closest to me I am definitely selfish at times. It's okay, everyone is. But I think I have made some progress in realizing the power of giving on a personal as well as global level. And sure there's a selfish aspect, the "joy of giving". But, oh, the difference in finding joy in making someone else happy, it could be a beautiful world. It already is.
