The Fifth Principle celebrated during Kwanzaa is NIA (NEE-yah). Purpose.
Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the community. We may have goals for our families, our retirement, but what about personal goals for the betterment of our community and our world at large?
Some things to consider;
- Recycling – to make our Planet a better place to live for future generations
- Giving of our time – donating time to Society of St. Vincent de Paul, YMCA, Boys & Girls Club of America or other community service oriented agencies to help others understand gifts they have been given, but are yet unrealized and unseen
- Prayer – perhaps including your local community in daily prayer for transformation into a better way for others
Purpose, do you have a new purpose in your life for the coming year, for the betterment of your community? If so, please share with others.
God bless you and Keep on Keepin' on!
