When the time came to attend college, J eagerly looked for opportunities to serve. He found himself surrounded by opportunities—people always found themselves in predicaments and in need of kind assistance. “If we really try to serve our fellowmen, we will find more than enough opportunities to do so,” he shared.
J has learned that the blessings of service are twofold. As he acknowledges the tender mercies of God in his life, J realizes that he is blessed as his service blesses others. The good comes back to him. “I know that as we ‘lose ourselves and go to work,’ we will be able to move forward in life with confidence,” he concluded.
