Life Tips from the Maasai Village Chief

The greatest law of life in the universe is the law of service. God provides for every living thing, Christ came to the earth to serve and give His life for humankind, and the angels are occupied in caring for the needs of humanity.

The same law of service is seen throughout nature. The birds and animals, the trees, grass, and flowers, sun, moon, and stars all provide something of benefit to others.

Is the world a better place because you are here? Strive to live a life of service; go out of your way to be kind to someone today. Kindness is rewarding. Giving is a condition of healthy living-a law of mental well being.

Most of us find that when we’re not in good health, it’s easy to focus on our own needs and difficulties. However, getting our minds off ourselves and working for the good of others is just what we need to give us strength to get well. It also reminds us that we are not the only ones with problems.

Implement these changes one step at a time and watch what happens.

For more helpful tips, visit Christ the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church at 3303 West Vernon Avenue in Los Angeles or call Pastor Joseph, the Maasai village chief, at (323) 687-2167.
