  1. This is a really neat, encouraging and blessed way to get others to reach out and show the love of Jesus. Thank you! My family and I have done clothing and food drives yearly. This year we are planning to help a teen food bank soon to come as well as helping a family in need in various ways. I can’t imagine not helping someone in need because it could likely be myself one day.

    God bless!


    • I loved reading your comments, Terra! It sounds like you and your family stay very busy doing the work of the LORD.

      The person of Jesus and the expression of compassionate acts and kindnesses, such as those that you mentioned, are definitely what we should be focused on. Giving and helping are blessed opportunities.

      Thank you so much for connecting. May God bless you and yours, now and always.
