There are two days dedicated to spending lots of money on ‘stuff’: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. At least, here in America, I know that’s true. I’m not sure about the rest of the world – well, I’m pretty sure third world countries don’t have the same insanity, I mean excitement, seen here in the USA.
There’s a third special day at this time of year in America. It’s called Giving Tuesday. Although, I think every day is a Giving Day, don’t you? It should be that way. Lately, the news seems to just be focusing on people taking, criticizing, disagreeing, or arguing. Giving is what will ‘make America great again’. Giving really demonstrates how much a person cares about the people and the world around them.
I KNOW there are people who give every day. In fact, I know their names. I’ve spoken to them. Shared meals with them. Helped them. Loved them. I know lots of givers. Most of the ones I know give because Someone gave to them. I’d like you to meet some of those givers I know. I don’t exactly KNOW all of them. In fact, I can’t even speak the language some of them speak but I’ve seen the results of their giving of themselves. I’ve seen how they love.
You can see their faces in the photo above. This year on #GivingTuesday I hope you’ll consider giving to Shores of Grace Ministries so these givers can continue giving to “the least, the lost and the last”.
