Daily Prompt: Ready, Set Go (Little Girl Who Fed a Bird)

Help others

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Little Girl Who Fed a Bird

Everyone needs a helping hand.
To prop them up when they are unable to stand.

Everyone needs a kind phrase.
Bringing consolation to a spirit overpowered by fatigue.

Everyone needs a tight embrace.
A reason to stop and realize that life is not a race.

Every time we help another.
We cultivate the Kingdom of the Creator.

35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:35-40)
