Everyone Needs Help
Everyone has problems and needs. It doesn’t matter who they
or what their status is. You should continually look for ways that you
can help people. Take action when you have discovered a need that you
know you should help with.
Do not just tell the person to let you know if you can help. Most
people will not ask for help. Think about ways that you can help that
person. Offer to do specific things and let them know that it would
mean a great deal to you if you could do it for them.
Some Ways You Can Help

Things to Consider When
Offering to Help

to be disappointed.
Help the person with a heart of love. You should not do it out of a
sense of obligation or desire to get something out of it for yourself.
Offer to help in a specific way. Do not require the person to come to
you and ask for help.
