Wouldn’t it be nice if we could make volunteer work mandatory. Think about it. Maybe we’d have happier people if we all volunteered. But then if it was forced on every single person, the reason behind volunteering would be lost. People would have bad attitudes about it. They’d make those around them miserable. Who’d want to work with people like that.
Forcing people to do it just to do it wouldn’t work. You have to want to do it. You have to want to have a serving heart.
I think of all the thousands of people out there today who are willingly giving of their time. Whether it’s at a hospital or helping your neighbor, if someone is in need of help, just do it. Don’t do it grudgingly.
