January is perfect to be designated National Human Resource Month. Now, I could go on with the obvious and discuss the business of human resources, but I’d rather speak to each of us having an obligation to be a “human resource” on this earth.
According to Merriam-Webster online, one definition of “resource” is a place or thing that provides something useful. As humans, we each have a divine purpose that makes us an automatic resource and allows us to provide something useful to our friends, family, co-workers and community.
Whether it be individuals, organizations, or institutions, they ALL can benefit from what you already possess, and you’d be surprised to know that it doesn’t take much at all! Here are three points to consider when determining your own human resource:
TIME - Time is a great resource because it’s something we can carve out of our schedule that will benefit your spirit as well as others.
TALENT - Your talent is another great resource because your God-given ability can help cut administrative costs or expenses that many non-profit organizations incur.
POSSESSIONS - The most obvious and also important resource is something you may already have in your home that’s in good condition and/or has never been used. Go through your pantry, linen closet, attic or garage, and you will see a treasure trove of items that can be donated.
See how easy it is to be a human resource? You definitely have what it takes, so let’s celebrate this month with a spirit of giving! And of course, that's always Moxie!
