Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10
This week at my church the pastor was challenging all of us in the church to be on the lookout for opportunities to be engaged in helping others. Whether it’s helping the single mother down the street by watching her kids so she can have a free moment, or helping someone at your church to find a new job, your good work will come back to you in so many ways. I really do believe that we are the happiest as children of God when we follow his example, and care and help others.
In fact, as it says in Proverbs, when we help others, we ourselves will prosper, and will be refreshed!
A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25
Living in such tough times as we do, opportunities to help others abound, all you have to do is be open to helping, and you’ll find a chance!
Will you make a pledge to help others this month? What are some ways you can help? Leave us a note in the comments!
