How Great Thou Part

I read this quote today on Beliefnet…

“You have two hands. One to help yourself, the second to help others.” – Unknown.

I love it! I think it’s perfect for this Thanksgiving celebration. It reminds us that to live a truly thankful life we need to be conscious of our blessings compared to the needs of others.

It also reminds us that we need to be fully accountable and help ourselves.

I love that It speaks to balance.

I found out the hard way that going to extremes (even while good intentioned) is counterproductive.

This quote is a great visual compass.

Are your hands equally weighted in Thanksgiving?
