Helping Others

Leadership is about people, and unless we observe how God works in our lives to provide opportunity to lead, we will miss the possibility of God using us to help others.

A Chinese proverb emphasizes: “If you want happiness for an hour––take a nap. If you want happiness for a day––go fishing. If you want happiness for a year––inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime––help someone else.”

Take a few moments each day to simply observe the working of God through the opportunities provided in the lives of the special people placed on our path and help them.

Helping Our Leadership…

What is it that gets us up and going in the mornings? Is it coffee? Exercise? Regardless, we all have times we need a little help.

Start the day with the Lord in prayer. Nothing helps more than pouring our hearts out to the heavenly Father. Speak from the heart and know He is listening. 

Follow up with reading the Word. David needed a pick-me-up, and he expresses how God’s word was the meditation of his heart. The same is true for us.

Provide someone else with a hand up. Few activities lift the spirit more than helping others. If we open our eyes and look, opportunities abound. Doing so lifts our own spirits.
