Doing for others

by

I can’t help thinking that the world would be a much better place if people strived to do good deeds for others rather that personal achievements for glory and/or money.
Do you think that people taking on these challenges should dedicate the achievement and/or some of the proceeds to a charitable cause? While some publicised personal achievements are incredibly amazing, brave, exciting etc., I prefer to hear about an individual sacrificing their time and effort for the greater good of people in need, an achievement I believe would be much more satisfying for body and soul.

Do you agree, especially as some challenges could end in large public expenditure  should something go wrong?

    Sometimes I think we all need to be inspired and it is wonderful to see people achieving their personal goals, whatever they may be.

    I totally agree that the world would be a much better place were people dedicated to give service. I believe in helping others we benefit more. In the words of Scriptures “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” We receive true satisfaction of body and soul when we become a blessing to humanity by offering heart service. Thats why, while it may be good to make this people donate money to charitable causes, unless they themselves are deeply willing to do so, then no need to force them.

    A key thing to remember when offering service is to answer the question, “What’s motivating me to do this?” While we may do good things, the underlying factor may be not good in itself, for example, a desire to boast, fear based or even an approval seeking project. It is when we deeply examine our hearts and lives then answer that question, can we offer heart service; service that is truly satisfing, a lasting source of joy and happiness especially when offered with all humilty of heart.This kind of service requires faith, courage, steadfastness and a statement of purpose. Such a service will leave a lasting legacy when we are finally buried in our graves.Great men like Abraham Lincoln, Noah, the Ark Builder, Abraham, Martin Luther and the Apostle Paul were actuated by this kind of service.The question is “Do you want to join their ranks?” I hope yes.
