Feeding the hungry is equal to feeding God. Humanity is Divinity. Your kindness ignites others’ life as meaningful. While our service would benefit others, it will also help us in our path of self-realization. Engage yourselves in social service as service to God, a best way to earn God’s love and benediction.
