The Extra Mile of Service

All duty is transformed if you regard it as service to the community. But think now of voluntary work in your leisure time.
Millions have never entertained the idea. They are entirely enslaved by self. They think only of their own comfort and enjoyment. They have never heard that ‘It is a happier thing to serve than be served’.
You don’t have to engage in this kind of service. You could refuse and still be a respectable citizen; it is, indeed, the extra mile. Yet thousands testify that every pace of that mile brings rich dividends. Like the quality of mercy, it is twice blessed.
Besides the gratifying knowledge that you have helped others, service widens horizons. It frees from the domination of self. Petty aches, troubles and desires are forgotten when you grapple with another’s problems. Service makes you a bigger person-more understanding, more sympathetic and much happier. In other words it makes you more successful in the art of living.

It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, If all website owners and bloggers will make good content as you did then internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
