Rise up, take courage and do it! Ezra 10:4
Good Morning! Camels are happy all over the world today! Can you believe it is Wednesday already?
Just about every Wednesday I encourage you to use your gifts to change the world, and I have discussed how we all have different gifts. Have you ever wondered what can I do? How can I make a difference? There are opportunities everywhere. A couple of weeks ago on Friday, I discussed ways to “pay it forward” and encouraged you to try. I always try to do whatever I write about, but that particular Friday, I was super busy. So, I took a twenty-dollar bill to the local utility counter and asked the nice lady to use it to help someone who in her opinion really needed financial assistance. Last week I heard back that the money assisted two families that were in need. I tell you this because the gesture took less than five minutes and the stories I heard brought tears to my eyes. How many times do we waste twenty bucks on fast food or junk that we never use? This week in our office one of the ladies on my staff collected money to help needy children with school supplies. Again, it did not take much money to make a difference. I think ten dollars a piece helped two children.
If you are saying I can’t even spare ten dollars, I have good news for you. You can help someone who is in a hurry by giving them your place in line at the store. One thing I try to do is be a resource to people and that doesn’t cost money. All I do is listen, and try to help them find the information that will assist with their concern. This is super easy and incredibly helpful. How about leaving someone a note to let them know you care.
As you can see there are opportunities to use your gifts to help others everywhere you look. All that remains is to just do it. So as you go through your day, help others. I can’t wait to read what you have done or plan to do. God bless you.
