Meet the need

"Duty is a very personal thing. It is what comes from knowing the need to take action and not just a need to urge others to do something."
Mother Teresa

How often do we sit around and yell for others to do something? Would we do this if we saw a child drowning? Save the child if you see the child drowning!

This is what we must remember. I believe that when God has put it upon my heart to clearly see a need that I am to be part of meeting that need. Rallying others to action is just a part, first I must rally myself.

To sit around and see an unmet need when I can handle it myself is like my children listening to the phone ring without getting up to answer it. If it is ringing and you hear it, answer. Likewise, if the need of another is ringing in your ear, get up and answer.
