Volunteering related Bible verses

Volunteering Verses (esv) In the Bible, volunteering time is treated the same as donating money. It should be noted that some people may take some of these verses out of context. You should understand clearly that God’s unction to do something is always based in love. It should never be based on being pressured into doing something. If you’re not sure, talk to your pastor before you do something drastic. Be sure God is truly talking to you. Don’t let the Devil rob you and your family. (see below 2 Corinthians 9:7-9)
