Survival Struggles

“You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11)

As a woman faced with the consequences of raising three children on a limited income with sporadic child support, I can totally relate to this story because I understand the ramifications of serious need. Also others struggling against the loss of a job, economic disaster, and an inability to provide; any unexpected generosity will be embraced with thanksgiving, appreciation beyond measure, and provide the assurance needed that someone truly does care after all.

To some, this type of generosity will be meaningless. But to others, this act will simply mean the ability to sustain life at least one more day.

A simple, generous act of kindness can be so life changing — especially when it means the difference between kids going hungry or having full bellies. A poignant blog post written by a mother of five made a beautifully honest illustration of that recently.
