My daughter asked me, “Why?” to which I replied, “Because we are in a position to help and give to others.”
I feel so very blessed this Christmas season of 2013 that our family is able to live a very rewarding and happy life. We do not really want for anything, and God has blessed us all with good health and much love.
So when it comes time to help others who give to us daily (like her teachers) and help contribute to those who are trying to make ends meed (such as the local organization Metropolitan Ministries and the homeless family on the street) I am all for giving and giving more.
Will you do the same? Will you set the example for those young ones watching you to see how you respond to the man on the street corner asking for money? Please do not reply, “Get a job!” because you do not know their story. Simply open your heart and your wallet and help those in need this Christmas season and be more like Jesus.
With love – Beth Butler
