Five minute Friday, a time to write about a word. No correcting, just free writing for five minutes
As children we learn from the time we are little that we have to share. As an adult this lesson of sharing must be taught to our children that they must share their favorite toy or share candy. Jesus taught the disciples how to share when he borrowed the five fish and two loaves of bread and fed the 5,000. If you have clothes that are not being used, share. If you have food that is not being eaten, share. Care more for others than yourself and you will share. When you see a need, share. When someone is sad, share joy.
Practical ideas for sharing with the homeless. Have bottles of water that can be given away. Have grocery cards or fast food cards that can be given away to meet hunger needs. Have an extra pair of gloves in the car, give them away. Give away your smile.
With your smile you give hope and add real energy to the plight of the homeless. Because you are willing to share. When we meet physical needs we can then help emotionally and physically. God you tell us to share.
Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
