Love is powerful. It is the base of charity. Being a volunteer is a great vocation. It can be of any service. The joy of volunteering leads a person to the love of God. Because it is the real love towards a human being that urges anyone for a voluntary service.

Volunteering should be learnt and tasted right from childhood. In the modern busy world the value of volunteering is going down. Modern lifestyle around the technological devices has reduced the value of volunteering. This kind of attitude fosters up only selfishness.

Every volunteering is a virtue. It is a joyful act of God's love. "Love is not to be purchased and affection has no price," says St. Jerome. This true love can be expressed and felt through the deeds of voluntary service.

What does volunteering give a person?

Volunteering is a sharing of joy. It fills a person with enthusiasm. It causes a change in the lives of the person who volunteers as well as those who are benefiting. It can be experienced only in the practical life. Anybody can be a volunteer and care people around.

Being a volunteer gives many opportunities to learn and develop skills. Anybody who devotes his time without counting the cost can taste the sweetness of love.

Volunteering is following Christ in the real sense. Christ showed the way of love through the story of the Good Samaritan.
Manifestation of Christian life is shown through acts of love. It is witnessing Christ in daily life.

A volunteer gives love

Winston Churchill rightly pointed out that voluntary service can build up lives through his words, “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” Volunteering is not performed as a chore, but it is a sacrifice of time, filled with love and service.

Sam Walter Foss says in one of his poems, “Let me live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man.”

Volunteers are real followers of Christ

Volunteers fulfill the will of God through their sacrifice and service. A volunteer can say with St. Paul, "For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all." (II Corinthians 5:14)

Be a volunteer in life to taste the sap of life. Make use of every little opportunity to do some kindness or service to others. Promote the art of volunteering.
