People serve their communities in many different ways and for many different reasons. Some serve because they want to give back to those who helped them during a rough patch of their own. Some serve because they feel a connection to a certain cause or organization and want to help. Others serve out of obedience to God's calling on their life. Some even volunteer out of obedience to a job or school requirement, an opportunity for a bonus, or a raise.
Volunteering can take on many different aspects. One could volunteer by donating tangible goods that will make life easier for someone who is in a tough place in their life. Folks can also volunteer or serve by making monetary donations to help financially support a cause. Volunteering can also consist of donating time to physically assist an organization. Volunteering, or serving, is flexible; it can be whatever you make it.
Are you currently serving somewhere? What is your "why"? Are you serving to fulfill a requirement? Are you serving out of an abundance of gratefulness and simply wanting to give something of yourself to help others? Or are you serving because you feel God called you to that particular ministry or cause?
