How to reALIGN your SIGNIFICANCE with KINDNESS
By Dan & Suzie Potter
“DO I MATTER?”
This is the question most people continually seek to answer throughout their lives. One’s “mattering” defines one’s sense of significance.
These questions must be answered, but too often we seek our “SIGNIFICANCE” answers solely from the clear approval of others. Their response to us, their remembering us, their “LIKE” button of our existence often sets our life relevance.
But what if significance comes from another place? What if our “mattering” comes from the inside instead of outside of us?
In the 9 Align Tool, the fifth tool is KINDNESS. We believe that this tool can and will directly effect your sense of SIGNIFICANCE.
Recently, a dear friend was in a hard financial situation. They needed a miracle and we became their miracle. We were able to give them more than what they needed. Yes that was KIND, but it was something more. It was a “mattering”.
Our purpose of life is to love one God, all people and ourselves. When we act in KINDNESS towards others, something good and essential happens inside. We experience “mattering”. It is a SIGNIFICANCE that does not depend upon others, it is produced by acting upon our belief that others are valuable and thus we are KIND!
Proverbs 11:17 says it so well: “Those who are KIND benefit themselves . . . “
Research clearly shows:
We are not saying that people's options don’t matter, they do! But our significance can not depend on the intentional or unintentional response (or lack of response) of others.
About 2 miles from my house several homeless people spend their day. They are cold, hungry and thirsty. What if today we drove there with a few coats we no longer use, a tray of sandwiches and same hot chocolate? The cost might be $5 and an hour or 2 of our time. We think we would leave those special people a bit happier and healthier and we would know:
“WE DO MATTER!”
