I am an advocate of spending yourself on other people, of using your talents and resources to make God famous and add goodness to the world, of foregoing pleasures and comforts so others might have clean water or food or medicine or some other thing we take for granted.
Caring = Good
Using Your Resources/Time/Energy For Things You Care About = Even Better
Every time we take what we have and aim it where we care, the world gets better.
Neither of us can care about all of the things. You can't care about all of my things AND all of your things AND all of your children's and spouse's things AND your Aunt Betty's things.
We will all lose our ever loving minds trying to care about all of the things and then no one will have the energy to care about ANY of the things. And then no one takes what they have and aims it where they care, and the world doesn't get any better.
Care about your thing(s). Spend yourself in your thing(s).
If you're my friend, I hope you will support me in my things but that doesn't mean caring like I do. It doesn't mean spending yourself in my thing - you have your thing, spend yourself there.
Support me by listening or giving advice or sharing some of your resources every once in awhile (not because you care about my thing, but because you care about me).
I'll do the same.
We'll take what we have and aim it where we care. We'll cheer each other on. And the world will get better.
