Be good for something

Last week I went out for dinner with the two men who were my counselors when the bishopric I was in was released. We went to a cheap Chinese food place down the street from my house and had a great time talking about life, our time together, and more.

Normally I’m not a fan of fortune cookies. I don’t need any lucky lotto numbers, and usually the little phrases aren’t very inspiring, but the one I got that night was particularly good. It has probably been said many times by many people, but it is the first time I’ve heard it:

Be not simply good, be good for something
