Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)
Author, salesman and motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar believed that everyone could have, do and be more. He has a lot of wonderful quotes about making the most of your life. He said, “Success is not measured by what you do compared to what others do, it is measured by what you do with what God gave you.” LINK believes that by helping our community and individuals we can have a positive impact on their lives. You never know when a kind word or thoughtful action will change someone’s day or life. God asks us to love our neighbors and that is what we strive to do. We would love to have you volunteering with us to make a difference in our community!
