Do not wait for someone else to do it. Serve them yourselves
“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.”
St. Teresa of Calcutta
It is a concept that Mother Teresa touted but was little understood by the masses. Person to person interaction. The act of one.
Although the culture lifts up Mother Teresa as a demi-god, her heart is often misunderstood. Her lessons are deeper and more profound then simply serving the poor and the dying.
Her heart was for the dignity of the human person. The right to die with love. And the understanding that we are all poor and dying, each of us in our way.
As a young Jewish girl, Mother Teresa’s impact on my life was profound and I invested in her philosophy of servitude and deep love. In her acts of kindness and humility, I found the God of love, and unconsciously my soul opened up when it contemplated service to others.
