Acts 9:36-43

If you died, would people care enough to want you back?  More than just your family, I mean generally would people in your community want you back alive?  I know the answer for me is no.  But what if I lived differently and constantly was known for my kind acts.  I bet the answer would be different.  
Obviously, that shouldn't be the desire of our lives, but it kind of shows the power of a life lived selflessly in community.  My life will have to look a lot different to get there, though.  I'm so self-absorbed.  We all are.  We don't like to take time to really know people.  To really understand.  If we help people, it's for our own personal benefit usually (a happy feeling of doing our good deed quota).  JM
