Giving a helping hand
I love writing and most people calls me THE STORY TELLER. Of course i love telling stories because i love educating others that is why i have chosen to write this story this way and as you can see from the title...HELPING HAND.
Helping hand is reaching out to someone.
Dad always say that no man is an Island and he is right because none of us would ever be where we are today if we have not been helped sometime in our lives that is to show you that no matter what happens or who we are that we need each other. Of course, we do but sometimes most people do not understand that once you plant a seed that you are reaching out not to only one person but to so many people that might directly/indirectly come in contact with the seed you plant or the fruit it bear.
Many a time, i have heard people talked about how wonderful others are, i have heard someone called another person an Angel, i have heard someone talked about chain of love even my friend Debra is not left out in this therefore it is profitable in every sense to give a helping hand where necessary and mind you, he who renders help to others enjoys the gesture more than the person(s) it is rendered to.
Set a good example
It is giving help...
There is nothing as good as setting a good example because the Bible made it clear that by their fruit,we shall no them but you see, i once heard of two friends who grew up together but parted along the line then was brought back together once again as friends that is why you never can tell because where your friend fail to show affection,someone else or something else takes charge of you that is why where men failed...

It is giving a helping hand
I mean, it is sad,heartbroken and highly devastating for those of us who find it difficult to express love and show concern on others yet these set of people sit at the front rows in the church then i ask myself
What is the golden rule?
"Love your neighbor as yourself"
This is caring for someone
Reaching out to others is suppose to be our general duty and one must not wait until called to give a helping hand, take for example that you are walking along the road and there stood a blind man who is about to cross the highway, will you wait for him to call at you to help him cross over or simply walk and lead him over?
This is giving a helping hand.
Now listen, i was about to retire in the night on this fateful day but i overheard my neighbor quarreling with his wife, the wife was pissed off that the kids had not eaten since afternoon,they only had their breakfast, she was pissed off that my neighbor was drunk and she was heartbroken that she lost her job that day.
If you were me,what would you have done?
As a matter of fact, their story was not new to me but that particular night was the chance i had to intervene so i got out of bed and walked into their compound and after squealing the quarrel, i invited them over to my place and my wife prepared food for the kids which we all ate together and from that night,it became mandatory for that family to eat their breakfast with us but it did not end there...
I helped my neighbor got a work as a driver where i work
I bought a sewing machine for the wife because she wants to set up her own shop
This gesture is no big deal because that is why we are friends and that is why God gave us heart and nature made conscience our judging tool.
One thing i have learned though it is said that helping others is good and it gives peace to our soul is that the best thing one can do is this...
Don’t wait for others to take the initiative.
Take the risk of reaching out
It’s a key means of caring about yourself and about others
"Blessed is the hand that giveth"
"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."
But above all...
The best thing you could give is not from your abundance but from your scrape
Remember the widow's might...
Love is affection but there is no way you can love your fellow human being the way you love yourself if you do not even love yourself so doing things together brings unity and this cultivates love and it is always very good to show appreciation whenever someone helps us.
Furthermore, it doesn't matter the kind of help you receive from someone, a smile can do it all and believe me, you can rise from grass to grace if you believe in yourself and find it pleasing considering others in everything you do because to love is what every heart yearns and be loved in return is what every heart yearns for that is why no matter what Johnny did to him,believe me, he meant it when he said I love you John
"Help you friend in need because it is good to show a fellow man how to catch a fish than to read a long emotional eulogy"
