Just a couple more weeks to Christmas –- the season of giving.
And most of us do that.
We give gifts, throw a party, buy a round for friends, tuck some bills in a Salvation Army kettle. Sometimes we even drop cans at the food bank or park an unwrapped gift under one of those charity trees at the mall.
We give. But when it comes those truly hurting, we do it ritualistically or from a distance. Most of us don’t make the giving personal.
And at a time so focused on close friends and family, that personal touch is what those most in need need the most.
Over the last week, a lot of us shared that photo of a New York Cop giving a homeless man a pair of boots.
But how many of us went looking for somebody we could help in the same way?
Give it a shot. It’s easier than you think. Even knowing that somebody simply cares can make a huge difference in the lives of those who are without this Christmas.
At the end of the day. We’re all they’ve got. Hope on the rocks.
Enjoy Your Sunday.
