That is exactly what God said in Hebrew 13:2, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertain angels.” If you want to meet God, do not ignore strangers. Take care of everybody.
No matter how poor, no matter how rich, no matter how tall, no matter how short, no matter how thin, no matter how fat, no life is worthless. When you see a stranger on the street, what do you do? When you see a poor person on the street, what do you do? When you see a child crying for help, what do you do? When you see an elderly person in a difficult situation, what do you do?
We want to see God, but we don’t want to see poor people. We don’t want to see homeless people. We don’t want to see people who don’t look like us. Until we learn how to entertain strangers, we will continue to live in isolation.
But you can change that. You can choose your own attitude. You can choose to help people. You can choose to ignore people. You can choose to focus on people’s weaknesses. Or you can choose to focus on people’s strengths. You can focus on lifting people up. Or you can focus on putting people down. Remember, your life will be much better if you focus on lifting people up. Your life will be much better if you focus on helping strangers.
When you help other people, you are helping yourself. When you help other people, you are helping God. You are here on this earth to serve people. If you want God to serve you, you must first serve God’s children.
It is about your own attitude. You have what it takes to change yourself, your life. You have the power to change yourself. No one can help you if you are not ready to help yourself. No one can push you to do what you don’t want to do. No one can tell you to change your life. It depends on what you want to achieve in your life.
“No man is ever created without the inherent power in himself to help himself.”- Charles F. Haanel
If you want to achieve greatness in your life, you have the power to change your life. You were created to defend yourself. You were not created to depend on people to help you solve your problems. They don’t even know your problems. If they don’t know what you are going through, how can they help you solve it? They can’t.
If you want to grow, change is necessary. It is important. It is what you need to get to the next level. If you hate change, you won’t grow. Change is difficult, but doable. Change requires awareness. For any change to be effective, for any change to give you what you want, you must know why you want to change. If you don’t know why you want to change, if you don’t know what you want to change, how can you change yourself?
“Change starts with you.”
You don’t have the power to change yesterday, but you have the power to change today. And if you want to change your future, start today. Because your future is happening right now. What you are doing right now is creating your future. If you want your future to be better than today, you must stay in the game. Because life is a game.
