We should express thoughtfulness towards others. Grateful to serve others. Grateful to invest in someone’s life. Grateful to have the opportunity to be of service. This kind of attitude would turn all of our “have to’s” into “get to’s”. Man would that evermore change the landscape of humanity!!!
H – Hear with your heart and help with your best.
Acts 15:35-39 But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, where they and many others taught and preached the word of the Lord. Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, "Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing." Barnabas wanted to take John, also called Mark, with them, but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work. They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus,
To discover our hidden greatness, we must be willing to overlook others faults, listen with our hearts and then reach out with our very best to encourage, train and empower those whom God has put under our leadership.
E – Encourage others to dream and live their dreams.
Ruth 3:1-6 One day Naomi her mother-in-law said to her, "My daughter, should I not try to find a home for you, where you will be well provided for? Is not Boaz, with whose servant girls you have been, a kinsman of ours? Tonight he will be winnowing barley on the threshing floor. Wash and perfume yourself, and put on your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don't let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking. When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do." "I will do whatever you say," Ruth answered. So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do.
Greatness comes from helping others dream and live out their dreams.
