We are blessed. Truly blessed.
We have a home, food, clothing, heat, water, cars, toys, blankets, coats, etc... We do not have any basic needs that are not met.
There are so many people who do not have their basic needs met. I want my children to understand how blessed they are and see how they can serve in simple ways to help bless those who are in need.
Activity: Set up for the Rescue Mission dinner - help roll silverware for place settings. Take food purchased for the food shelf and drop it off at the food box at church. My original intention was to help at the food shelf but they did not have a need this month. We will be serving at the food shelf the first week in January - organizing shelves and helping families shop for groceries.
Bible Verses: Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4
I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:10-13
