I have read about 3 blogs today advocating for
Operation Christmas Child
and I have been encouraged for our family to serve.
We did this when we lived in Atlanta
but sadly forgot about it here~
no church to spur us into action
(so the excuse we make).
I watched this video today and was completely moved!
This was even MY status on FB today...
You and I are called to give back to God in gratitude, but also as a demonstration of our priorities. And, it is a demonstration of our faith in His promises. We give back to God as a demonstration of our priorities and as a demonstration of our faith in His promises. God says He will provide all that you need. He doesn't say He'll provide all that we greed, but all that we need. Mal 3:10 (RW)
I think, no I KNOW God has clearly spoken to me...
He has blessed us with amazing blessings
and it is our responsibility to teach them
to show God's love to everyone all the time!!!
Yes... I dug the boxes out of the trash can
and I can't WAIT to take the girls shopping
to fill our Christmas boxes!!!
Pick an age, and fill a shoe box with non-perishable, non-liquid
gifts. Enclose $7 for shipping. Maybe have your kids write a
note. Easy, right? And what a blessing to a child.
You can find drop-off locations here (during the week of 11/15-
22), or please feel free to bring it to us by December 1. We
will happily get it to a drop-off point.
Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you--
guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
