If not you, who?
At our football devotional the other night our speaker brought up the subject of volunteering. He spoke about the importance of it and the way it can affect so many people, the volunteer included. I think volunteering is something we can all do a little more often. It doesn't take a huge time commitment, maybe even only a couple hours each week. Volunteering is always a great way to witness; it really allows God's love to shine through us. A couple Bible verses on the subject include John 13:34-35 ("A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”) and Acts 20:35 ("In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”). Jesus often stressed the value of helping others, and we all have the ability to give something. Remember: If not you, who? If not now, when?
Until next week
