Why You Should Help People

Have you ever been around someone who would move to world to help a brother out? These people seem to be rare these days.

When you find them, you want to make sure the friendship lasts. You know there’s something special about them.

They know you should help people. It’s the right thing to do. What about you?

People who are willing to help are people magnets. Everyone wants to be around a person like that.

Their desire to help people shines a beacon. And they deserve the attention they get.

Two friends come to mind when I think about people who are extraordinary helpers. First is my coworker Jim.

Jim’s a guy who’s always looking to help someone out. Whether it’s opening his home to a person in need or fixing my latest automotive disaster, Jim’s right there to help.

He’ll give of his time, his money, and his energy if it means someone will be better off.

Then there’s Bob. I got to know Bob through geocaching but we’ve grown to be more than caching buddies. We’re really good friends.

Bob’s also willing to give the shirt off his back to someone in need. He’s always looking for ways to serve and help others.

These two guys are amazing examples to me. They encourage me to be better. They push me to reach out and help others.

Why You Should Help People

Zig Ziglar used to say:

If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want.

While that’s good and all, this shouldn’t be your main reason for helping people. This is the end result for the help you give.

The reason you should help people is because it’s the right thing to do.

No matter your lot in life, you’re at least one step ahead of someone else. You have more knowledge, more money, more time, more something.

Being in this position calls for you to help another person.

You’ve been given more. Give it back freely.
