Virtue of the Fortnight: Helpfulness

What is Helpfulness?

Helpfulness is being of service. It is doing useful things for people, such as things they cannot do for themselves, something they do not have time to do, of just little things that make life easier. It is important to be helpful to ourselves too, by taking care of our bodies. There are times when we need help from others. That is a good time to ask for help.

Why Practice It?

We all need help sometimes. We need people to teach us, and people to give us their strength or ideas. Sometimes we just need a friend to talk to. If there were no helpfulness, there would be no cooperation. When we practice helpfulness we get more done. We make each other’s lives easier.
