What’s In Your Hand?

Don’t think just because you don’t have the same skill set, or can’t do the same things as others, that you have nothing to give. There are plenty of excuses; too old, too young, too poor, too busy, but there are many ways to serve.

It’s the problem of too few options. People don’t help because they forget that their unique abilities are important and needed. Everyone can serve, it just looks different in each situation.

I heard this example used of What’s In Your Hand?

What do you have to give?

Can you write a note? Can you run an errand for someone? Can you sing? Sew? Give speeches? Do you have money? Time? Ideas? What do you have to offer? Don’t think its not good enough, sometimes the smallest act of service can be a huge blessing.

Humans are a needy bunch and it’s good to care for each other, and offer what we have. Service looks different for everyone and there are plenty of uses and needs for your skills and resources. So don’t withhold them just because you haven’t stopped to consider what you are capable of.
