Charity in Your Heart~~June 26~~Susie Austin

“If you haven’t any charity in your heart,

 you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”

 ~Bob Hope

 

When was the last time you did something for someone totally unexpected and How did it feel?

 

We recently had new neighbors move in next door and I went over and introduced myself and welcomed them to the neighborhood. My son and my daughter’s boyfriend went over and helped them unload their moving van. It was a nice gesture and I was proud of the boys and thought it was a nice way to welcome new neighbors. I remember a time when neighbors knew each other and people had block parties, cookouts, and looked out for each other.

 

My challenge for you today is to meet your neighbors, make a conscious decision to learn about the people who live close to you and offer to help if needed. Is there an older woman who lives near you who needs a friend, maybe her garbage out or even mow her lawn?

 

There are many kinds of charity and I invite you to examine what is in your heart? Are you in need of a transplant, bypass or is your heart healthy with charity?
