Day 45: Do Volunteer Work

Day 45: Do Volunteer Work- You don't have to look very far to find someone in need. First, look around your neighborhood.  Drive or walk around the block and see who needs some yard work done or where there are a lot of kids.  Offer to pull weeds, wash the windows on the house. Whatever, needs done be willing to get to know your neighbors and lend a helping hand.

If they have kids get them involved in the work too.  Teach them how to help others and talk to them about how rewarding it is to help those your are close to.  After, you've helped the neighbors now look in your own family.  Is there an Aunt, Cousin, Mom or Dad that could use help around the house? 

Maybe they don't have lots of money and bringing them a bag of groceries would show how much you care.  It's this kind of help that Jesus taught us to do.  Not to just have a personal interest in our own lives but in the lives of those near to us as well.

Day 44: Find A Role Model- In my family the Bible is the book we read most often.  We also have many other Bible based publications that teach us how to draw close to God and how to follow the example set by his son Jesus Christ.  We have one night set aside every week to do Bible reading and discuss what we've learned and how it can help us in our life today.

Then, at our weekly congregation meetings we get more spiritual guidance and direction from the Bible.  There is no greater gift than what God did for us by sending his first born Son to the earth to die for our sins and give us a hope for everlasting life.

Keeping this good spiritual routine has helped us get through all kinds of trials that this wicked world brings to us.  Having a strong and close relationship with our spiritual brothers and sisters has also helped us endure during these critical last days that Jesus taught us would be the sign of his presence and of the conclusion of this Satan controlled world. Matthew 24: 1-22
