31 – Generosity

Emily got in her car and drove to the grocery store. It was something she did every day. She purchased some vegetables and some meat. Every day she got something different, but it was always healthy.

After leaving the grocery store, Emily drove to the rescue mission to drop off her daily donation. By now, everyone at the mission knew who she was and they were always grateful for her help.

One day, Emily was dropping off the groceries when she saw a reporter doing a piece on the mission. The secretary immediately introduced the reporter to Emily.

“Emily brings food every day and keeps our fridge stocked with healthy food,” the secretary said.

Emily smiled and handed the groceries to the secretary. The reporter said, “Really? That’s wonderful. Can I interview you and make you a part of this report?”

“Sure,” Emily said.

After the interview, Emily went home. When she awoke the next morning, before she left to go to the grocery store, she saw the report on the local news channel. She immediately started getting text messages from friends and acquaintances.

She sent a little prayer to God, “Thank you, God, for making me a light to so many people. Bless them all.”

Emily’s story is a reminder that even small acts of kindness can make a big difference. By donating food to the rescue mission, Emily was able to help feed people who were in need. Her act of kindness was noticed by the reporter, and her story was shared with the community. As a result, Emily was able to inspire others to help those in need.

“Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives. Then my favor will shine on you like the morning sun, and your wounds will be quickly healed.”

Isaiah 58:7-8

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

Hebrews 6:10

He who has pity on the poor lends to the LORD: When we give to the poor (expressing our love and pity towards them), we aren’t wasting our money. It is like lending money to the LORD Himself.

Proverbs 19:17
