March 23: Focus on What You Are Here to Give

Day 33


Service is at the very core of our identity as human beings.


Focus on what you are here to give by switching your attention from the question “What’s in it for me?” to the question “How can I serve?” Each morning while showering or making your way to work, ask yourself, “Whose day can I make today?”

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 185–188 (paperback version) or pages 191–194 (hardcover version).


Jesus, focus my life on what I am here to give. Help me to do what I can where I am.

What will your legacy be?
