Imperfect job match

Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others; then they will not be unproductive. Titus 3:14

Paul is more worried about people sitting around and doing nothing than job satisfaction. We shouldn’t only volunteer when the serving opportunity matches our gifts and talents. Urgent needs are often met through basic tasks anyone can do. We don’t have to be good at something to do good; we just have to be willing to do it and learn. Many jobs simply require following instructions and getting dirty.

Lord, when there’s a writing emergency I’m available. Until then…how can I help?
