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.
