A good rule of thumb for life is "Add Value To Others". This is a nice idea but the reality is that most of us go through life with the priority "Add Value To Me". If we truly desire to value others, words can do that. A word of encouragement. A word of thanks. A word of warning. However, our actions toward others ... actions of love and service ... will usually add much deserved value to those around us.
Lord, please help me to add to others in both words and action.
