Sinec my last entry, I (with family and/or church members) have done a couple of things I’d call “service,” but this goal is really about inculcating a mindset: a permanent, constant concern for the welfare of others.
Two things can do this: praying for the gift, and making plans to do specific things for people in my planning for each week. Ultimately, though, I want to be the kind of person who spontaneously puts helping others-
in whatever way I can-first. It’s not who I am yet, but I do want to get there.
Next: regular prayer and planning 5 years ago
