Deuteronomy 15: 11
There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers who are poor and needy in your land.
We are busy looking at one of our school’s values – caring. Last time we focused on how to treat people with kindness and generosity. This week we will focus on how to help people in need.
Teaching children the importance of giving to others, whether time, money or energy, is one of the most valuable character traits in a child of God. The Bible is filled with verses and examples of people of all ages helping others. It doesn’t matter if you have a lot to give or a little, it’s the heart that matters! Be encouraged today to go make a difference in someone’s life! You never know how a small act of kindness can draw someone closer to God.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Lets focus on reaching out to others this week, showing that we care by giving of our time, energy, money or even just a hug or a smile. Let this act of caring become part of our daily walk and talk so that our children can see and experience it and follow our example.
