Welcome to Day 8!
Giving is something many of us wish we could do more often. As the mother of five kids hand-me-downs have always been a part of our world. Thankfully though our kids always like getting the older kids things. Jack just turned four and he is so proud of the fact that he can finally fit into his brother’s Croc’s. I love to see him put on those shoes and get on his little car pretending he is his big brother. Somehow, someway, those hand-me-down shoes, in his mind, change him.
Jesus told us that giving was very powerful. It changed things – and people – and many times those people were the ones who did the giving. Perhaps maybe those most of all.
DAILY DARE: Today pick an item from your closet, cabinet or jewelry box that you will give to someone else but choose an item that is hard to part with. Think on these red words as you choose what to give and who to give it to. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
