The Joy of Helping the Needy
Don’t Wait for an Army
When it comes to helping the needy, you don’t need to muster up an army before you begin. Just look around you! Is there a little boy across the street without a dad who needs someone to teach him to catch a baseball? Is there a widower in your neighborhood who needs his hedges trimmed? Is there a lonely elderly woman on the pew next to you at church who could use a smile? Is there room at your Thanksgiving table to invite a college student who can’t go home for the holidays? Is there a little girl in your life who may need someone to treat her like a princess and take her to a movie? Take the time to look at your own life and ask God to open your eyes to the needs that may be right around you.
