Sometimes we feel bad when we can't do what others do. Some people have already had a spring break and have gone to warmer climates. It's easy for those of us "stuck" at home or in a windowless office to feel sorry for ourselves.
Then I went to the food shelf this morning. So many are without work. So many are in danger of losing their homes. So many are lost without the secure knowledge that the Lord is with them.
God calls us to love others and to share. That's what we do at the food shelf and in other social ministry opportunities. And if we have the basics, God can give us contentment, and thankfulness, if we ask.
