|Today’s challenge: At the dinner table tonight, if the children have not completely zapped you of any strength you had left (if so, save this challenge for another night- lol), ask them this question, “Think about our neighbors, friends, and even strangers who may need a helping hand. Which one would you choose to help if you could and what would you do?”
Let their imaginations go wild and then help them figure out a way to help someone that is tangible and within the reaches of your family. It might be a simple “doorbell and ditch” where you make up some cookies (or buy some- lol), take to their house, ring the doorbell, and hide. Or it might be more extravagant like having a garage sale and donating the money to someone or something.
We need to teach our children how to be more like Jesus and showing compassion for those in need is a perfect way to do this! It teaches wonderful lessons in humility, gratefulness, and kindness.
A couple of examples:
