Helpfulness is being of service to someone. When you are being helpful you do useful things that make a difference. Helpfulness can be doing something that others cannot do for themselves, things they don't have time to do, or just little things tha tmake life easier. There are tiems when you feel helless. That is a good time to ask God for help and to let others be helpful to you. There is plenty of help if you're willing to ask.
I am practicing Helpfulness when I...
- Notice when someone needs help
- Do a service wihthout be asked
- Give people what they need, not always what they want
- Listen to someone who needs to talk
- Care for my own needs
- Ask for help when I need it.
I am helpful. I care for myself and others. I look for helpful ways to make a difference.
