How are you doing today?!
I love the stories throughout the bible were Jesus was helping people or the story of the good Samaritan. It is absolutely great to know that there are people out there who are willing to help.
When you think about people in need and helping them what are the first thoughts that come up to you? Is it about giving money or material things? Maybe giving them a helping hand when they are moving to a different house?
People in need is such a broad and wide subject. It can mean so many things, so I just want to share some of my thoughts with you. At first I think that there are people in need everywhere! Whether they are Christians or not, living in the poorest country of the world, using drugs or whatever. People need help!
I love to help, I might need not be the most generous person in the world, but when it comes to helping others I am totally in my zone. I love helping a pregnant friend with some things she is not able to do anymore, because of her belly. The woman on the street with the little girl that really needs to go to the toilet but she is standing in the line with her groceries. Going to a different country to help a primary school with fun activities. Helping out a friend who is in financial need.
Praying and asking God to open up your eyes to see the needs of others is absolutely the first step in the process. You might also want to pray for your heart because it isn't always that great ;-) sometimes it takes a lot of time, effort and energy to help someone. Ooh and you might get nothing in return! You can find people in need everywhere, sprinkle Gods kindness everywhere you go!
This is all for today! Yest shortest blogpost EVER! Go out and help others, don't wait for them to come to you. Send some of your friends a message and see how they are doing. Even when you are doing your grocery shopping you can find people that need help, it might be reaching for a product on the top shelf because an elderly woman can't reach that high anymore.
Open up your eyes, reach out to other and sprinkle the kindness!
I know you can do this!
