Paid by Passion

Volunteer work can be rewarding and frustrating, and sometimes it can be both at the same time.

It can consume your every moment or simply be something you do in passing.

You might wonder is it all worth it? What am I doing working for free? Why is this important?

It suddenly occurred to me as I was driving down the road for lunch: it is worth it; I am not really working for free; I am being paid by passion for the work being done. In much the same way a person can simply have a passion for the truth, a volunteer’s passion for the goals before them is the payment they receive.

Attaining those goals is important. The journey is worth every step along the way.
