“I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases your credit… And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:10-19
When the times were tough for the Apostle Paul, there was one church that provided the resources he needed. He mentions specifically that he did not seek gifts or resources sought gifts and resources for the church. Volunteers of America Chesapeake is only guided by the core values of caring, respect, faith, quality, and trust. By seeking to serve with these core values in mind, we continue to abound and increase.
We will not only continue to greater serve the clients, but also grow to increase our reach to other services. We will continue to stay motivated with His strength as well as the great work that the staff provides to our programs. For this year’s, 5 Weeks of Giving campaign, let us think of ways we can continue to give so that we can provide for those in need. So that we are not giving for the sake of our own needs but for the needs of others.
