Serving the Neighbor

Tonight as I sit in my new home as it snows outside, I am reminded of the many who don't have a place to call home; who don't have a bed to sleep in and who call the streets their homes at night.

I don't always understand the choices people make. I know that some would rather buy cigarettes etc than buy the things they really need. But I also know that's not true for everyone. There are so many for whom this is NOT the choices they would make at all. They would do what they can to provide their family with the needs they need.

Because I/we are the fortunate ones, it is important for us to follow Jesus' example of servanthood. It brings me such joy to watch youth collect food for those who are less fortunate. It brings me joy to watch as presents are wrapped and given to Operation Christmas Child. It brings me such joy to watch families and homes work together to serve their neighbors.

"As for me and my house we will serve the Lord."
