Lighting a candle

Doing good will not always feel good. People who help others often suffer for it. Still it is always better to light a candle, than to complain about the darkness.

There will be those who need you when you are weary. Caring can be an exhausting proposition. It is not for those who cannot do without their creature comforts.

People will test your kindly disposition. Will you rise to the occasion? Or shall you fall into selfishness, and bask in a meaningless existence.

A life of safety helps no one. There are risks, but they are not worth mentioning when souls are at stake. Make things better, or stick to the sidelines.

Those who care do not do what they wish, but what they must. It is not required to give up yourself. But the focus should be towards the outside, where you are needed.

Easy is for the weak, and not for the good. True strength must be tested to find its worth. It is not shameful to fall, so long as you give the fight of your life.

    1. Caring and desiring are two different things, Tommy. By its nature, caring cannot be selfish. Its focus is always directed outward.

  2. Caring takes giving it your all towards making things better, determination, and a strong will to fight to the death.

    1. It is definitely not something to be taken lightly, Chris. Souls are at stake here, so it is important to give your all. Those who want the easy way should just get out now.
