M Gandhi, as he stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so, Gandhi smiled, “The poor man who finds the shoe lying on the track”, he replied, “will now have a pair he can use.”

True greatness lies inside of each and every one of us, and it is crying to get out. Release it by serving others by having a heart full of compassion. So, what is compassion? It’s seeing someone else with a need and then being willing to do whatever we can to help the person with his or her need – not because the other person deserves it, because God has put us in a position to help with those needs. True compassion is not just an emotional feeling; it’s an act of the will. It’s a decision on my part to serve the needs of another regardless of how I feel about that person.

Greatness comes from service, and service comes from humility. God is not interested in how great we are, but rather interested in how great others are as a result of your life. Whenever we choose to serve the needs of other people, there is always a cost involved. Sometimes our time, sometimes our emotions, sometimes our financial resources, and often all three.

Are we living a life worthy of being called a child of God, or are we trying to impress others by wearing a mask?
When we read Gods Word, it says, “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:11).

1 Samuel 16:7
The Lord does not see as people see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
