Joy of service

One component that enables each of us to become a blessing to others is through giving service. Being volunteers giving unconditional service to those who are in need create a bigger difference to the world. Committing yourself for other's gain is the most selfless thing to do. It does not only make other people's lives better but it also makes you feel better about yourself, that somehow you became a part of someone else's consolation.

History is replete with stories of men and women who dedicated their lives to serving others. Their deeds were remembered and dedicated, their lives engraved in hearts of Millions, because they freely gave themselves so people can find meaning in life and the joy of serving others. There are those whose greatness lies in little how the simple things they do passionately and fervently, that their effort becomes obscured in the silence of their deeds.

True joy of service rests in our hearts where our minds cling to the prospect of making other's lives better and helping them selflessly. The feeling of satisfaction arises only when you silently see others happy and gratified by the service they received.
