One of my favourite writers, Seth Godin, recently said,

“If you’re not drowning, you’re a lifeguard.”

This quote reminds me that we are blessed to be a blessing.

There are many of us who are doing OK in life.

Work is good, our families are going well, life is grand.

If I’m doing well, but my neighbour is struggling, then am I really doing that well?

Perhaps I’ve been positioned so that I can lend a hand, encourage, make things better.

Perhaps, I’m meant to look out for those less fortunate than myself.

Yes, there are times when we are battling ourselves just to keep our heads above water.

But if you’re not drowning, you’re a lifeguard.
