Serving God by blessing others

As a reader of The Christian Science Monitor, I can think of many articles that have impacted my life. But one was so memorable that it influenced my eventual career path. 

While in graduate school, I read a series in the Monitor, “Children in Trouble: A National Scandal,” about children in jail, and one article in particular, “Children cannot be stored …” (April 7, 1969), by staff correspondent Howard James. This left me with a strong desire to help these incarcerated children, and I prayed about their conditions.

The desire to help those in need comes from our natural desire to love God and our fellow man.
