Thank you for volunteering and sharing with all of us at UCC.
The godly are concerned for the welfare of their animals, but even the kindness of the wicked is cruel." - Proverbs 12:10
We are blessed with a great group of volunteers, we thank you all -
Have you ever wondered what the bible says about volunteering? As I checked it out I was amazed at the number of passages that pertained to volunteering. And YES, we are to volunteer, in all forms; physically, mentally and spiritually.
Here's a few examples like:
Isiah 58:10 - Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out of the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as day.
Luke 6:35 - Love your enemies! Do good to them! Lend to them! And don't be concerned that they might not repay. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to the un-thankful and to those who are wicked.
Proverbs 11:25 -The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
Matthew 23:11 - The greatest among you must be a servant.
Mark 9:35 - He sat down and called the twelve disciples over to him. Then he said, Anyone who wants to be the first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else."
Volunteering rewards are stored in Heaven
