This doesn’t come naturally

 

‘We do not live for ourselves alone in this mortal body, doing things only to serve ourselves, but we also live for all people on earth. In fact, we live only for others and not for ourselves. That is why we discipline our body, so that we can sincerely and freely serve others… Therefore, it is not possible for us ever to be idle in this life and not to serve our neighbours.’

WA 7:64 (The Freedom of a Christian, 1520); see LW 31: 364
