Ease A Burden
Welcome to Service – The Action Form of Love
We all have burdens.
Some of us have burdens of work, others of raising and keeping a family fed. Many of us have both.
Today’s challenge is short, sweet and simple:
Help someone with their burden.
Some burdens can’t be easily lifted off the shoulders of the bearer. Some are deeply emotional and psychological. Others are physical burdens like too much work, too little time. Most of us are facing economical burdens because of the economy, fear of losing our jobs or just the stress of watching others lose theirs.
What can you do to help?
Remember, the idea here is to find small and simple ways to serve others. Find one or two little things you can do to help someone who is overburdened.
Maybe you can just let them vent and listen without interrupting.
Maybe you can offer to run an errand for them.
Maybe you can watch their children so they can have a night to themselves.
Small and simple.
That’s what it’s all about.
Thank you for taking today’s challenge – I appreciate you!
Thank you also for being willing to pass this on to others. You, my friend, make a difference.
You “get it”.
You know that Service is The Action Form of Love.
