The Helpers High

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality

Romans 12:10-13

Having Covid this past week I have had plenty of time to read up on all sorts of homeopathic remedies which I personally prefer whenever possible to prescription medication. I had to laugh that the majority of on line search results are for products that provide a natural high compared to the ones that are chemically induced. Are you aware that the Bible provides for us a natural high that each of us can enjoy daily? Have you noticed that when you look around at the people in your life that the majority of people who seem to be the most happy are people who dedicate their lives to helping other people?  

If I could show you a safe and effective way you could experience a natural high today would you be interested? Don’t worry, it won’t make you sick or cause you to lose control of your facilities. It’s a high so pure it will have you coming back for more. Just think about it. Out of all the highs a person can experience in this life the ultimate is ours when we choose to serve others. I like to call it the, “Helpers High”. And the best part of the “helpers high” is it also one of the best ways we can overcome stress and anxiety too. Four simple steps that you and I can take today and every day to get the most out of life, and rid ourselves of worry and stress at the same time. Sound too good to be true? It’s not, read on.  

4 Steps To The Helpers High
1. Do something for someone that has a greater need than you.
2. Step 2. See step one
3. Step 3. See step two
4. Step 4. See step two

There you have it. Look around today, get the focus off of you and look for someone else with a greater need today and then do something for them expecting nothing in return. Its in these moments we experience the “Helpers High”, a satisfaction so deep that not only brings God glory and does good for others, it also provides lasting satisfaction and joy to those who put others first. Here’s to a great week ahead!  

“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.”

Philippians 2:3-4
