Today I remember the blessing of helpful people. I thought of what characterizes such people:
Helpful people live ready to assist. They reserve the energy, time, and resources they have in order to bless others. It’s as if they truly believe their day is not their own; it belongs to God to use them as He wishes in helpful service.
Helpful people live recognizing the need. They look around. They notice what people need and rise to help.
Helpful people live radiating cheerfulness and love. If they cannot physically or verbally assist, they help by their attitude.
I want to teach myself and my daughters more about having a helpful spirit. Proverbs 3:27 reminds us: “Do not withhold help from those who need it when it is within your power to act.”
