another privilege

I feel honored time and time again with all the many opportunities I get by being at Crossroads. Tonight I had a huge privilege, I got to pick up a precious, recently widowed lady from our congregation and take her to "How to survive the Holidays" after losing a loved one.

She baked me brownies for driving her.

I was humbled.

Over dinner tonight my hubby and I identified several people in our lives that need help and determined to be much more intentional in serving those that God brings to us.

I am not writing this tonight to make myself look good, that would take far more than driving someone around.  Instead, I hope to encourage you to take a look at your life before year's end, and see if there are some people less fortunate or hurting that you can help.  A single mom, a widow or widower, a person in the middle of divorce or separation, someone who has lost a job or that is suffering with health issues.

You don't have to have a ton of money - just a deliberate awareness of need.

If you are willing to serve, He will bring them to you!

Thank you for the reminder, Lori! I always feel better when I can get outside myself ...

Have a great day!
