We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.
Ask God for the wisdom to recognize that your true happiness here on earth is magnified by allowing others into your life in a meaningful way.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
1 John 4-7
