Daily Prompt: Volunteer

via Daily Prompt: Volunteer

I want

I need

I have

Sadly, these are all too frequent phrases we hear today.

Rarely do we hear

I’m grateful

I  know how Blessed I am

I have enough


What do you need?

 Heads down, entranced in our phones, when do we connect to check in on one another?  Sadly, people say they “don’t have time,” but in an age where both parents work while juggling parenthood and a full household,

these questions are completely relevant

As a society we need to come to realize that there is far more to life than getting “things.” We need to reach out to the stranger on the street who looks as though he is sick and suffering, to the innocent child that appears hungry and neglected.

In short,  we need to volunteer. Whether it be time, money, or prayer, it’s our responsibility to lend ourselves to those who need us most, by volunteering. Whether time, money, or any other means of support, to volunteer is to give back .
