Others

Many years ago, the Founder of The Salvation Army, then very old, was preparing to send his annual Christmas message to Salvationists around the world. In those days, communication was by telegraph, and you paid for each word that you sent. Times were tough and the Army was short on money, so William Booth sent a one-word telegram. The word he sent was: OTHERS.

When you live for self
You will remain on the shelf
But when you live for others
You will progress further

The gifts of God in you
Is not just for you
It is to bless others
Lift them, make them better


You are not called to everyone
But you are called to someone
You’re not called to run every race
But there is a race you’re called run.

So find and follow your vision
Face and fulfil that vision.
Seek the glory of God
And your work will be done.
