Nowadays, we are so caught up in our busy lives and in accomplishing our daily tasks that very little attention is paid to serving others. We need to change this and try to cultivate in ourselves and in our children the desire to serve others. It should become one’s ambition to invest one’s free time in serving others. We should regard serving our parents as a source of perpetual reward.
Our children should not feel ashamed of doing household chores. They should cheerfully carry out the instructions of their parents at all times. They should be trained to give preference to others over themselves. At all times the comfort and wellbeing of others should be considered.
Youngsters should respect the senior members of the family and be willing to assist them. They should not feel embarrassed to clean the house and their surroundings with their own hands. Helping the poor, mercy towards the weak and removal of harmful objects from the pathway should become natural to them.
