“A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.” John Ruskin
Have you ever found yourself volunteering for a job that you didn’t want to do with a grumpy attitude? Do you always volunteer to pick up cans for a food drive, clean up trash for Earth Day, or be a youth group leader with a happy heart?
I wish I could say that I do! I’m not proud to admit it but there have been many times whether it’s volunteering for Boy Scouts, a church activity, or a community project where my attitude has been really stinky.
Do you want to know what God has done with this yucky attitude of mine?
In every instance that I can remember when I dreaded, complained, or had a bad attitude about showing others kindness with my volunteering works to glorify God, I’ve come home feeling like it was one of the best uses of my time I had spent in a long time. I felt humbled, like a servant, with a clean heart and each time I’ve been grateful for my life.
If the thought of showing others kindness through volunteering makes you want to run, I’d urge you to give it a try! If you like children, find something that spreads kindness for children. This is the same for volunteering with the elderly, poor or homeless, environmental groups, Red Cross, animals or any other organization that you have compassion for.
I’d love to know if you have experienced the same feelings after volunteering that I have! If so, please leave a comment below to encourage other readers to give volunteering a try!
