Helping

Helping—This gift prepares one to build up and support a person in what they are trying to accomplish.  Unlike service, which is primarily task oriented, helping is primarily about helping a person. An example of leading through helping would be lightening the loads of those who are getting behind in their work by working alongside them (Phil. 4:3).

Testimony/Example of Those Who Have Used This Gift
Charlene, nurse, recent convert, married, mother of teen and younger son--“At work, we have this LPN who is very insecure. She moved up here last year from Tennessee to stay with her dying mother. She was abused by her ex-husband, and her siblings are always giving her a hard time. Even though I do not have to do any direct patient care in my position, I enjoy teaming up with her to help her. If two patients show up at the same time, I'll go ahead and take one, so that the other nurse won't feel overwhelmed. There has been many times when I have mowed the yard for my husband. He will work 10 hours and be dreading coming home and having to mow. Then he will come home and the yard will be mowed and dinner on the table. I really enjoy it when he's happy. Whenever it is time for him to go hunting, he waits until the last minute, or the morning of, to start packing. I will rush around the house with him, to get him all packed up and ready to go. At church, for this past youth rally, I helped by serving the dinner on Saturday and cleaning up afterwards. Then on Sunday, I made a pot of spaghetti for their lunch. I try to always include in the emails, ‘let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.’”
