Helpfulness:  Doing useful things for others--things that make a difference to them, no matter how small.  It is taking the time to be thoughtful, reflecting on what people truly need and assisting them respectfully.  We help others by doing things they cannot do for themselves. It is often easier to give help than to receive it.  It takes courage to ask for help when we need it.  There is always plenty of help when we are willing to ask.  When we work selflessly to benefit the lives of others, we always bless our own.

The practice of Helpfulness:

  • I look for little ways to make life easier for others.

  • I do a service without being asked.

  • I offer my support in respectful ways.

  • I give people what they need, not always what they want.

  • I allow others to be helpful to me.

  • I strive to be a blessing to others.
