One of my goals lately has been to try to help my Happy Buddies understand that God has a big giant heart for the ‘least of these’ and that He has entrusted some of the world’s needs to our care.
I want my boys to look for ways to help others – that we have the tremendous privilege of being God’s hands and feet to the hurting and the hungry.
I don’t know about you, but where we live, whenever we pull off of a highway and we’re waiting at the light, there is always someone standing there with a sign.
A sign that reveals the person’s greatest needs – homeless, hungry, etc.
I have been feeling so convicted about all of the drives where we have flown right by that person without so much as a backward glance.
I’ve been wanting to make these cute Blessing Bags, but to be honest, life is just too nuts right now and funds too low to make as many as I would like, so we opted for something a little more simple…
Now I have a stash in my car to pass out whenever we come across a need.
It’s not much, but it’s something.
And I pray that it is modeling for my boys how God wants us to love.
Would you like to know where those Jesus Loves You Snow Much tags came from?
You can get them HERE. :-)
How do you encourage compassion in your Happy Buddies?
Happy Granola Bars of Love-ing! :-)
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38
