Brett over at the Art of Manliness is having a 30 day challenge for all of us guys out there – to become a better man. I encourage all of you to check it out and take the pledge. Today, he challenges all guys to talk to perform service.
I have always been one to serve others. Back to high school when I was involved with the Interact Club (Jr. Rotary), and then into College where I worked at soup kitchens and volunteered my time with church and other outside organizations. After college I continued being involved by becoming a Rotarian and giving back to the community that I loved within.
Since moving back to Michigan I have to say that I have not gotten as connected service-wise to my community and I am definitely looking for ways to do this. I have considered becoming a Rotarian again, but finances are tight and this costs money. I may look into something through church uch as Habitat for Humanity as I know they will be working on a house soon. So I know that the task today will not become one that will be finished today.
It is nice though to have a little reminder about what is important and to put things in perspective if you know what I mean.
I am still working on trying to figure out the best way to get my girls to catch on to the importance of serving others and hope that they will learn from my example regarding the importance of giving back as they get older.
How about all of you, how do you perform service?
