‘What’s in it for me?’


A recent applicant to Freemasonry understandably asked “What’s in it for me?”

Benjamin Franklin, a Freemason in the 1700s, offered this reply: “

“Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealings with one another; sympathy that begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason.”

– Wages of a Mason , Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Grand Master of Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania
