Like Jesus, receive and give the gift of love! Help others do the same!
Why serve? (Advice adapted from The Kids Guide to Service Projects by Barbara A. Lewis)
- Serve because Jesus did and you are committed to live His way of life. He said, “I came to serve, not to be served.”
- Serve because things are not the way they should be so do something to change things for the better.
- Imagine how good it will feel to know you made a difference for someone else.
- Think about the talents and abilities you’ll develop: leadership skills, organizational skills, public speaking skills, etc.
- When you apply to colleges and look for jobs, you’ll discover that admissions official and employers are impressed by young people who serve. More and more colleges are looking beyond grades and test scores for students who give of themselves. More and more companies are encouraging their employees to contribute their time and energy to community service projects.
- You might find your life’s direction and purpose through service. A service project can put you in touch with people you might not otherwise meet and opportunities you might not otherwise have. Your personal world will expand and grow in ways you never imagined.
- You’ll feel yourself growing in positive – and surprising- ways. This is what happens when we challenge ourselves to make a difference.
What would I like to do?
What might benefit the most people?
What might make the biggest difference?
What can I afford (in terms of time, money, etc,)
What is possible for me to do?
What do I have a passion about?
What . . . (Add your own questions.)
Serve with others – it’s more do-able and fun that way!
Choose people who share your interest in the project and who are likely to stay with you until it is completed.
