Jesus said that the two most important things in life are "to love the Lord, thy God with all your heart, your soul and your mind and to love your neighbor as yourself." (paraphrased) That in a nutshell is life. For without God, one would be like a sheep that's lost in the steep, craggy hills –perhaps stuck among the branch without the shepherd’s rod to release us. But when God leads, we can go through the valley of the shadow of death and yet emerge victorious.
The second part of this command demands that we love our neighbors and we do that when we relate, give and share of ourselves, our time and our blessings. Isn't life more meaningful this way then keeping all the good things to ourselves? Finally, God knows the fabric we are made of. He knows we are inclined towards ego centrism and he provides a measuring rod by which we should not exceed loving ourselves at the expense of others. (166 words)

Good start, but needs expanding, perhaps a short anecdote of your own. Perseverse and keep writing.
