Don't Wait to Be Asked

Helping his sister cross the tightrope
When a mother was sick and father was unwilling to help, grandparents stepped in to care for a tiny baby that was in need of love.

When a student had potential but lacked direction, a teacher pulled him in at lunchtime to give him extra instruction and guide him into being the successful writer that he is today.

When a young woman was consumed with planning her wedding, several ladies invited her to Bible study to teach her how to be a Godly wife. 

When a family was hit by the loss of a job, another family from their church opened their freezer and shared the fish they caught the weekend before.

When a toddler came home from the hospital after an accident, she smiled at the sight of her front door covered with balloons and signs left by friends.

When a little boy needed a family, a girl told her mom and dad that she wanted him to be her brother.

What do these all have in common?  Someone saw a need and met it without hesitation.  No one called and asked for help.  No one received recognition for what they did.  It was simply done.  What can you do today to love someone?

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16
