I have a serious question today….When you want to help someone out for the holidays, how do you choose who to help?
I went online, Craig’s List, under General and there are about a half dozen families that need help, and only a couple asked for themselves; mostly it is friends asking for friends.
A pregnant mother needing baby supplies. A father trying to catch up from being out of work for months, with two small kids. A mother with no winter clothes after being out of work from a car accident (victim of a drunk driver). A mother with four kids and nothing for Christmas.
We read about a man who opened his home on Thanksgiving to people who wanted a place to go, and this year he will feed 87 people. I can’t do that. I can choose to help one family but how do you choose from among so many hungry people?
