There’s something about volunteers

That puts a smile on our heart;

It shows they’re willing to sacrifice

As they fulfil their given part.

They volunteer to help indeed

But their efforts do not go unnoticed;

Since God takes note of everything

When they’re driven with a pure focus.

Volunteers are not paid

But they’re truly rich within,

Because their precious time is used to assist

And it’s much joy that this will bring.

Volunteers make a sacrifice

And their mission is very special;

They’ve learnt to give back to the community

They are indeed loving vessels.

A volunteer is humble

With no monetary reward in store,

But when they extend a helping hand and heart

There’s treasure evermore.

Missionaries are volunteers

And much respect goes out to same;

Who risk their lives to share the gospel

Whilst not desiring money or fame.

Since they do not let their left hand

Know what the right is to do;

Understanding that the reward is from God

With nothing to boast of or to prove.

The gospel should be preached

And done so voluntarily,

Since freely we’ve received from God

And we should share same for free.

And any offerings should entail

To assist those in need,

With provision for their physical needs

Whilst prayer is used to intercede.

Volunteers can greatly benefit

When they have a vision in mind;

Who sacrifice their time and effort

Hoping for employment to find.

Skills and expertise will come

When our time is volunteered,

Whilst we assist those persons who have a need

It reveals a heart that is sincere.
