When something needs to be done – don’t wait for someone else to do it for you—donate your time and pitch in. (Charles Wickers)
When we see an obvious need in our community or around the world, we sometimes say, “Somebody ought to do something about it.” Wickers encourages us to be that “somebody.” Surely, if we can, we ought to. It may involve the sacrifice of time and effort, but if it really needs to be done, perhaps we are the ones who should step up and do it.
Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives. (Titus 3:14)
