~Look around at the people in your everyday life—perhaps people at school, at work, neighbors, a club, or people you used to know. Is anyone going through a problem that might require a little extra money? Newly divorced? A teen with limited income for clothes? A newly widowed lady? Someone making a lot of trips to the doctor? Choose one and do something for them this month. If possible, do it anonymously.
~Think of someone who has helped a friend or relative. If you do not know anyone’s name, ask your friend or relative for a name. Send them a thank you note for helping in a situation where you could not.
~Many people think Jesus was always serious. However, he said some funny things. For instance, in his “Sermon on the Mount” in Matthew chapters 5-8, he talks about having a log in your eye while trying to pull sawdust out of someone else’s, lighting a candle and then putting a basket over it, and a camel walking through the eye of a needle. How does it make you feel to know that Jesus likes fun?
