S-eeks to fulfill duty, or do some favors
E-ncouraging others, or you?
R-esponding to a call of the heart- fighting
V-exation of the spirit, if at all it does nothing.
I-s it an outlet of your passions? Or must it be-
C-ompassion working out your will?
E-choing, “It is flying above the self, giving others their wings”.

What is “service” to you?
