Today, I am thankful for this book:
This excerpt from this book hit me so hard last night:
"When a friend gave a T-shirt to a boy in Zambia, the boy's grateful response was, 'Now when I wash my shirt, I do not have to be naked when it dries'."
Are you kidding me? Why is this okay? Why aren't we doing everything we can to help. This is why I love organizations like TOMS, Wishing Well, HOPE International, etc. If you haven't heard of these organizations, look them up. It'll make you think twice and encourage you to help change the lives of these people.
Here's the opening Bible verse for this book:
"The poor will see and be glad --
you who seek God, may your hearts live!
The Lord hears the needy
and does not despise his captive people."
What have you done lately to help someone in need? Be thankful for what you have every moment of every day. There are those who have it way worse then you and I am positive they'd be willing to switch their problems for yours!
