A tombstone in a small English village reads,

"Here lies a miser who lived for himself,

And cared for nothing but gathering wealth.

Now where he is or how he fares,

Nobody knows and nobody cares."

In contrast, a plain tombstone in the courtyard at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London reads,

"Sacred is the memory of General Charles George Gordon, who at all times and everywhere gave his strength to the weak, his substance to the poor, his sympathy to the suffering, his heart to God."

The love is not selfish.

(From a sermon by Dennis Davidson, The Elements of Love, 6/14/2010)
