Our efforts to help others, especially those we love the most, will never be completely free from anxiety. But we can, by God’s grace, begin to love freely with no strings attached, as God Himself loves. The test, of course, and the measure of our progress, is the way we react when our “helpfulness” is unrecognized or goes unrewarded
(see Luke 14:12-14).

Please help me, Lord, in all I do
To act and think with motives true;
And by Your love reveal to me
