The last couple of weeks I’ve learned the true meaning of friendship.
My feet, due to injuries and arthritis, are getting worse. After my surgery, I’ll be unable to do anything that requires much standing or walking. Several people have jumped in and offered to help.
They’ve volunteered to do my shopping and errands. One said she would clean the house, another friend, the laundry.
This got me to thinking. What do I do when someone needs help? Am I as willing or giving of myself? When was the last time I cleaned someone’s house? Drove a friend to an appointment or shopping? Helped someone financially?
When was the last time I gave money, time, or effort to the point that it was a hardship on me?
Christmas is a wonderful time of the year to share God’s love. What better way to show His love than by doing something for another person? Many people struggle this time of the year. It might be financially, grief, depression, loneliness, or any countless reasons.
Let’s step out, and boldly demonstrate God’s love by DOING!
