Do unto others....common good
I embrace the concept of Common Good...of looking beyond one's own nose to the needs of others; of success being making a difference in the lives of others; of working to correcting injustices happening to others; of community; of planting seeds to share the fruits with the future; that embracing community lifts all of us up.
I believe in the premise of "it takes a village" to improve the lives of everyone. Does Common Good reject business success or people becoming wealthy? Certainly not! I think it just says as we lift others up, our own circumstances improve. I believe that Common Good is just the Golden Rule in action.
What do you think?
