I am admittedly not always the best at it, but any time I find myself trying to decide what to do in a certain situation I try to remember this passage. Call it karma, call it the golden rule, call it whatever you want, just consider it.
Give, and it will be given to you. Your gift will return to you in full — pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.
~ Luke 6:38
P.S. Despite all the controversy and media coverage the last few days, don’t miss the fact that some REALLY awesome things have occurred as well. MTV finally aired its episode True Life: I Have Diabetes and did a decent job of describing what “true life” with diabetes is actually like. And the diabetes online community gained two members as a result.
First, Taylor (follow her on twitter) found us because of the hashtags and @mtv replies being used during the episode. Then, once Kim published her post about the episode, Kristyn, one of people with diabetes profiled, found the online community too. Follow Kristyn on twitter too and be sure to kindly welcome them both to the community… y’all.
