Apple is a complex symbol, with a variety of meanings which can be incorporated in a variety of contexts. It can mean love, knowledge, good health, passion or luxury, etc. In Chinese culture, it also means peace, as in 平安.
In modern days, apple is no longer just a fruit; it has also become a brand or rather a symbol of success – Apple, one of the world’s most successful brands, that brought iphone into our world. Steve Job, its co-founder once said, “Apple (the company) is not about making boxes for people to get their jobs done, although we do that well. Apple is about something more. Its core value is that we believe that people with PASSION can change the world for the better.”
He further said, “You’ve got to find what you love. The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking… As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Inspired by Steve Job, I have used an apple as the logo, and the apple in this context means our passion for Lions and community services.
When we serve, let’s serve with passion. If we develop a passion for serving, we will never cease serving. In fact, we will enjoy serving and fall in love with Lions.
