Helping Children in Poverty is Not an Obligation; It’s an Opportunity

helping children in poverty Helping children in poverty [3] is not an obligation but an opportunity. It allows us to grow emotionally and spiritually as we experience fulfillment through stewardship and the joy of loving sacrifice.

When we seek to relieve the wants and misery of others we are blessed. Giving out of a generous heart enables us to escape the hold material things and money have over us. Joyful giving frees us from our disappointment and lifts us up out of our emptiness when financial success eludes us or fails to satisfy our souls.

“A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.” – Proverbs 22:9 (NIV)
