In the hecticness of our busy lives it is easy to forget or not even realize that there are people living in true poverty. Taking a drive through select areas of our city yesterday brought this issue to the forefront of my mind. It doesn’t really matter if it was a matter of poor choices, laziness or lack of planning, there are people living in deplorable conditions. If the truth is known, many of us are just one paycheck away from homelessness. Today I challenge you to make a difference for just one family living in poverty, real poverty. Having said that, I encourage you to use caution not going anywhere that you feel is unsafe or putting yourself in any danger. Some ideas include buying a meal for a family. Paying a utility bill so a family can have heat in their home. Buying groceries for a family. Volunteering with Habit for Humanity. The list goes on and on. I can’t wait to hear about how you made someone’s day. God bless you.
