Reach Out For The Orphans
A parent took their 5-year old daughter to an orphanage. After few hours playing with the orphans, her mother announced that they have to go. With tears in her eyes, their daughter said, "It's just not fair. I have so much and they don't have anything."
We can't deny that some children from a "Class A" & "Class B" family have so many toys and clothes that some of them are really unwanted. What can we do? In Jesus' name, let us donate those "unwanted" clothes and toys to the good orphanage. When possible, we can offer physical help by volunteering to host some entertainment program and invite the children of your friends to join. Children in the orphanage love to have some friendly visitors. If we feel led, we can seek to provide homes for these precious children. And all of us can pray- beseeching God to help those for whom life is so unfamiliar. Reaching out to needy children, showing them our love and care is one way that God can use us to bring hope in their despair.
"When Jesus saw this... He said to them,"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." (Mark 10:14 NIV) Let us show the love of God through our hearts and our hands.
