Helping Others

By Dr. Chad Audi

Think about the last time you helped someone out. How did it make you — and the other person — feel? Chances are you experienced the satisfaction of doing something worthwhile and the person you helped was greatly appreciative.

The willingness to help others is a wonderful quality. God praises those who lend a helping hand. I get a good feeling knowing that the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) is helping someone in need every single day. Our country’s sinking economy is causing more and more people to come to our doors looking for a warm place to sleep and a hot meal to satisfy their hunger.

Reaching out to others is definitely one of the special qualities God looks for in His children. Flashing a simple smile and nodding hello to a stranger on the street, complimenting a co-worker, or volunteering your time at a non-profit organization like DRMM are just some of the little things you can do to show others you care. Believe me, it can make all the difference in the world.

Volunteering can also help change a life. Tutoring a young child increases the chances that he or she will have a promising future. Cooking meals for the homeless provides them with the physical strength to survive. And ministering to the disadvantaged will build up their self-worth and spirituality. In the end, lives are touched and you have done a good deed.

DRMM is blessed to have volunteers and donors helping us in our mission of rebuilding lives. For example, take a look at this video.

Are you willing to open up your heart and give of your time to help others? I guarantee your life will also change in the process.

One response to “Helping Others

  1. I honestly love doing community service and helping other people. I feel as though helping others is the best way to show people that i truly care. I am willing to give up my life to help others. I would like to help others and know if i am ever in trouble, others would also help me out. As it is i already give up my time and travel helping families and others who can’t help themselves. I think volunteering is the best way to show people you want to help and you want them to be happy.
