“…do not show ill will toward the needy among your fellow countrymen and give them nothing. Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow countrymen who are poor and needy in your land. “~Deuteronomy 15:9-10
Labor: expenditure of physical or mental effort especially when difficult or compulsory, human activity that provides the goods or services in an economy.~ Webster Dictionary
Who do you labor for? If you have a job you might say your boss. A mother could say for her family and children might say for their parents. Those who are self-employed labor for their customers. Have you ever considered at looking at what you do as laboring for the Lord? Whether you are working a job or volunteering you are working for God.
The joy of volunteering/laboring at Open Door Mission is you are able to see God at work. If you fill unfulfilled I encourage taking time to volunteer. Volunteering gives you a chance to show God your gratefulness of the blessings He has bestowed on your life. Volunteering blesses other by providing services that may not “be in the budget”. Volunteering encourages understanding and breaks down barriers. When barriers are broken we can we see what we have in common, not so much our differences. Volunteering is a great way to labor for the Lord. So come labor/volunteer at Open Door Mission to further God’s love and blessings. https://www.opendoormission.org/volunteer/
