Today I Quit My Job

Today I quit my job as a professional volunteer.


Didn’t you just start it?

Yeah – sort of.

First, it’s important to remember what this means to me. If I believe in you or your organization, I’ll give you my time.

Second, let’s remember why I do this. People need Jesus. That’s all.

But someone pointed out a few things to me today.

• Volunteers are volunteers. Period. No matter what they do, or how much they do it, they (we) are volunteers.

• And…labels can lead to pride issues. I don’t personally have pride issues, but if I could be on that path, better to hop off now, rather than later.

So, I am NOT a high-capacity volunteer and I am NOT a professional volunteer.

I am a volunteer (and a child of God, because that’s the most important thing).

I’ve got 24 hours in a day. I need to sleep roughly 8 of them. That leaves 16 to be a volunteer.
