Giving

Have you ever felt really, really happy? Some people would say that you felt like you were “on top of the world.”

I felt that way the other day. My friend and I went downtown to buy coffee. Outside the coffee shop was a man who was asking for money. He held a sign that said, “Anything will help!” That’s when I started making a plan. When I placed my order, I also ordered a hot chocolate and a warm bagel. On the hot chocolate cup I wrote, “Jesus loves you!” As I left the shop, I gave the cocoa and bagel to the man. He smiled as he read the words on the cup.

At that moment, I was very happy. I was happy because I was able to give something to someone else. Verse 7 of our Bible Reading tells us, “Each one of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give…God loves those who are happy to give.”

Do something nice for someone today! God will bless you, and you will feel happy.
