When we spend time around people who are joyful, kind, and making a positive difference in the world, it can be contagious to spread kindness. I think of times when I’ve helped load food into a car for the Feeding South Dakota Food Distribution here at Hillcrest or helped get the store ready for Community Outreach’s Sharing Christmas event and it inspires me to keep doing more of what God’s called me and all Christians to do – love Him and others.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are some ways you can put others’ needs above your own during Christmas gatherings you’ll be part of?
2. What are some ways you can serve people in need in the community this Christmas season and beyond?
Challenge: Try helping with the Feeding South Dakota food distribution at Hillcrest. It takes place on the third Wednesday of every month. Contact a pastor for more information.
