Love to me means sharing my gospel with Haiti. ~ Carolina age 7
Kindness is not only lived out to the immediate people around us, but everyone in need.
We have currently been given a situation in which to live out loud the verses below, and a great opportunity in teaching kindness to our children, by supporting those who were devastated by the earthquake in Haiti. This is a great teaching tool as you get the whole family excited to help because the needs are so great everyone can do something.
Children seem to learn best when they have a hands on experience. In this situation the whole family can go through their out grown clothes, or take a trip to the store for water or food supplies. This learning experience can be made into something fun the family can do together.
35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ 37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’
40 And the King will tell them, ‘I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’
