Reaching Out

Monday, February 11, 2013

“Just for Me 2013 February Challenge—Day 11 Today I called a lady who has been sick to check on her. She is a source of pain to most people in the community; however I wanted to reach out to her to let her know that I care about her. She was so happy to hear from me and I was glad to share a few moments with her. Reaching out made to her made me feel good as well and I am glad that I did. When we think of giving, we think of money, but most of the time people need us to take a little time with them or give them a kind word. "The Lord loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor. 6:7). emoticon emoticon

    Good for you. It is so much harder to give our time and ourselves than money. You probably made her day more than you will ever know.

    Blessings abound when we care for others in Jesus' name. 1 Thes 5:13 "Encourage the timid, help the weak, and be patient with everyone."

    Jesus says we need to love everyone as He loves us! Loving can be real difficult at times. You are serving the Lord with your efforts.

  You've made a very good point. We all need to stop and take time to give to others, even if it seems like such a small thing to us, it could be a huge thing to someone else.
Thank you
