Blessed To Help Others

Each year the people of Edgar County step up to assist with Christmas baskets for families in need. I have not been able to help every year, but when I did, I was truly blessed. It is wonderful to see people of all ages working together to help others. And, experience has shown, First Christian Church is always very well represented.

This willingness to serve reminds me of the scripture in Matthew 25:40, when Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”

This is the time of year to step up, step forward, and step out in helping others when and where we can. God has promised, if we remain faithful, one day He will say to us, “Well done, good and faithful servants.”
