Service

Service

Service is giving to others, making a difference in their lives. You consider their needs as important as your own.  Be helpful without waiting to be asked.  Do every job with excellence.  When you act with a spirit of service, you can change the world.

You are practicing service when you…

  • Want to make a difference in the world
  • Look for opportunities to be of service to others
  • Do thoughtful things to help your family and friends
  • Work with enthusiasm
  • Don’t wait to be asked when something needs doing
  • Do your part to care for the earth: recycle, reduce, re-use

Affirmation

I am a person of service.  I have compassion for those who need help. I do my part to make a better world
