  • “Know the real joy of good living.”

    A beer commercial stated that the way to discover real living was to drink their brand. There are many others who would disagree and say the way to real living is service to others. Jesus would agree with the last statement. He said while on earth, “In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these, you have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:45). One of our hymns caught the meaning of this verse. It is titled simply, “Others.”
