Give Thanks and Give to Others

Oh my heart is breaking. A couple of small kids – a girl probably no more than 10 years old and a much younger boy – called in front of our house and asked if we could spare them some money to buy rice. We gave them some and food and they thanked us sincerely. In a third world country like ours, this is really not a strange sight but this is the first time kids have come to our home to beg like this. It’s past 1pm, a hot afternoon, and while I stay here in the comfort of my home after a good meal, those kids are going house by house under the hot sun begging. Never take for granted what you have. What little you can give, give. It is a big help to others who need it.
