As I sit at my computer, I can’t stop thinking of how often we simply take life for granted. We are all guilty of just moving through our day without noticing the gifts we are blessed with on a daily basis. Please recognize just how blessed you are to be able to be reading this message. Most of us have a home. We have our families…we have our health…and we are able to work. However, there are many in this world struggling to meet the needs of basic human existence. It is our time to reach out and help…whoever we can…wherever we can. It starts by simply praying for everyone. Pray. Pray without ceasing, and step up and do something to help. Many of us have extra clothes in our closet that we simply don’t wear. Many of us have extra food in our pantry. Many of us have something we don’t need, that is extremely valuable to those that now have nothing. Let’s show the love of Christ, by pouring out God’s love. We can start by giving, helping and praying. We can all make a difference in this world…one small act of kindness at a time.
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. PROVERBS 27:17
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 CORINTHIANS 9:7
God is with us.
