I prayed about it for several days and I knew in my heart that it was the right thing to do. I gave it away by:
- Contributing $80 toward a friend’s fund to take a memorable school trip with her son ( our whole group knows, loves and appreciates this friend).
- $20 toward a stranger’s groceries along with this note:
A small group of ladies from our town get together each month to give, share and spread God’s love with others through the joy of spontaneously gifting someone with money. Today you are on the receiving end of this gift. We didn’t pick you…God picked you. He wanted you to share in this message: My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19. God wanted you to have this blessing for a reason. Maybe it’s because money is tight in these economic times right now…Maybe finances aren’t a problem at all, but you needed a lift in your spirits..Maybe you just needed a sign that God loves you and desires a relationship with you. Whatever the reason, YOU have been blessed. Perhaps you will have an opportunity one day soon to be a blessing in some way to someone else. Have a wonderful day!
I wasn’t there to see their reaction, but I knew that they must have felt joy! I felt very honored and ecstatic to have the opportunity to help someone with a need.
