One aspect we can focus on with the linen cloth is an act of mercy.  Joseph of Arimathea, stepped in after Jesus’ death.  He saw a need and gave hugely of himself for that need.  He risked getting in trouble with the soldiers and gave the tomb that was being saved for his family, to someone in need.

This is something that is easy for us to emulate: giving back during this holiday season and using the break from school to do so.  This could be the day to do such an activity.

We can learn from Joseph’s example and give our time and resources.  Teaching children to give to others is an invaluable lesson.  We have given several ideas in past blogs on what you can do as a family to help those around you in need. It doesn’t have to be complicated; it just has to be done!
