Lord,

We need so much to grasp the underlying meaning of life. Today I can see on every hand the rat race people are involved with.

It seems that in the crowed food market or other buying place, you become only a number –losing the sense of personal identity. The clerk moves rapidly to total up the charges quickly so he can check out the next few folks, and take his scheduled break.

Where is that personal touch now-a-days? I’ve discovered that only sure way to contentment is wrapped up in:

The “cup of cold water” to a stranger,

An understanding touch for one who is hurting,

A close feeling shared with a loved one who needs expression,

A living experience of fellowship –

My God and me ….

I am sensing though these experiences – the Real meaning of Life!
