I will Call You!

Often when you ask if there is anything people will need they will tell you something like this. “If there is anything I can do, just call.”

Do Unto Others

The advice to do something nice for someone follows logically from the golden rule, i.e., to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matthew 7:12), and is, in effect, a summary of the Bible’s teaching on morality. We all know how good it feels when someone does something nice for us, and so we should return  the favor, or perhaps “pay it forward,” as the saying goes. This can be done in so many simple ways, from helping someone with their chores, to inviting someone to eat with you or otherwise sharing your food, to just being there for others. It doesn’t have to be expensive; sometimes the best gift is the gift of our time. A patient and understanding listener is often the best therapist. On the other hand, gifts are also nice. Who doesn’t like to be the recipient of a thoughtful gift? And monetary gifts are always practical. Sometimes the nicest things we do are the things we do for those who don’t expect it, or deserve it. If someone deserves to be forgiven, then it’s not a big deal to forgive them. But if someone doesn’t deserve to be forgiven and we forgive them, that is a big deal. Do something nice for someone each and every day and occasionally do something really nice for someone who doesn’t necessarily expect it, or deserve it.
– Christopher Simon

“In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets..” Matthew 7:12

The other thing to think about everything we do and do to each other should be unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:23 and Ephesians 6:7). Plus, remember the Lord says what ever you do or don’t do unto the least of these, you have also done unto Him. We should put our others needs before our own. We are called to service others not our self. Not be selfish etc.
