The Best Cure

Dr. Karl Menninger

After giving a lecture on mental health, psychiatrist Karl Menninger fielded questions from the audience. “What advice would you give a person who felt a nervous breakdown coming on?” someone asked.

Dr. Menninger replied, “Lock up your house, go across the railroad tracks, find someone in need and do something to help.”

People who stay home feeling sorry for themselves tend to experience more sickness: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Putting others first in acts of unselfish service will help to cure a lot of those illnesses.

“Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet…Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”—John 13:14,17.
