"If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important." Galatians 6:3 NLT
Something is important because of its purpose. No purpose? No importance. Think of a battery. It is small and not very flashy or attractive. But its purpose makes it important. You can’t use a mobile phone, channel surf with a remote control, see in the dark with a flashlight, or start your car without a battery. Batteries are important because their purpose is to make it possible for those devices to reach their potential.
We are designed by God and commanded by God to help others. Helping others is part of our purpose, and when we help others it is like plugging a fully charged battery into our life. Just like a mobile phone without a battery is a purposeless paper-weight, a person who does not help others is purposeless, just taking up space. You are not too important to help others; you find your importance and your purpose by helping others.
Watch for the chance to help someone this week. Try to find at least one person to help everyday. It might be a person you see in your regular routine, or a random person on the street. Remember, when you help them, you are fulfilling your purpose. Trust me…you’ll get a charge out of it.
“Share your food with the hungry,and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.” Isaiah 58:7 NLT
“‘He gave justice and help to the poor and needy, and everything went well for him. Isn’t that what it means to know me?’ says the Lord.” Jeremiah 22:16 NLT
