My Day Off
Yesterday my family and I took the day off to spend time with each other. We figured we could go to St. Marie’s Island. But upon hearing that my church needed packers for the food distribution center, we decided to spend part of our day packing food for the people affected by the pandemic.
We wanted to help. Packing food was the best time we could have spent our time, knowing we were a part of something special. I am telling you that giving is far better than receiving.
At church, we found out that there is a shortage of help. Many of the students who helped went back to school. The decision to limit the places to go to drop off came because there is was not enough food packers and drivers.
Proverb 28:27 Those who give to the poor lack nothing.
Prov 22:9 The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
We have decided to help weekly. But we can not do it alone.
Please do two things: one—Pray for people who are going through hardship during this pandemic. Two—Find a community where you can help.
But If you live in the Tyson or Maryland area, you can help. Just go to https://mcleanbible.org/tysons/local-outreach-2/. Sign up for a time and help.
If we all give a hand, we can help people in need.
To our family, it was a blessing to help. Let’s all do our part.
Thank you for reading and being a light in this world.
