ONE
===

ONE is the smallest whole number, yet the most significant.

We often think of the big numbers; hundreds, thousands, and millions. Life
really boils down to ONE.

One aspect of ONE, I am divinely commanded to help at least ONE person, each
day.

That does two things.

First, it helps the other person. Whether it is just a compliment, a dollar
given to a homeless person, or even something so small as holding the door
open for someone, it is help. It helps ease the burden of life for someone.

Second, it makes me focus on someone other than myself.

This world is geared to make us self-centered.
After all, we have enough stuff of our own to deal with without trying to
solve someone else's problems.

We don't have enough money for us so we focus on the two outside letters of
"money" instead on the three inside letters.
We don't have enough time for us.
We don't have enough joy, peace, and happiness for us.
We need our relationships improved.
We need a compliment and an uplift.

We need help.

We often don't have time to think of helping someone else.

There is a funny thing about helping some"one" else.
When you are helping someone else, for that moment in time, your own
problems are diminished.

I will tell you to do as I try to do,

"Help someone every day."
