This sentence above is what stops me from really changing the world, from changing my world.
I can do some great stuff for a day or for an event but too often the monotony of helping and loving others can, eventually, become too much. When the shine wears off or the excitement of the adventure passes, I stop.
Instead I am reminded that whatever I am doing to love others I must not do out of duty but rather from a place of devotion. I haven’t signed up for a day or two, or even for a few weeks instead I have to be in for what can only be described as an ‘undetermined time’.
After all, who says when enough is enough. I may declare ‘been there, done that, got the t-shirt’ but if the t-shirt still needs wearing perhaps I should just put it back on.
A different way to look is to see the opportunity, to go with it, have a change of answer, don’t see the inconvenience for myself, instead be the person who says ‘If I can, then I will. Why not?’
Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act [Proverbs 3:27]
Just a thought – what do you think?
