Ten Thousand Villages

Scripture reading

By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
–Hebrews 13:15,16

Thought of the Day

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I were in a cool little store called “Ten Thousand Villages”. It is a non-profit organization that supports artists in third world nations by purchasing supplies and then buying the art pieces. They have a lot of great nativity’s and other stuff. When we were checking out, I noticed a framed quote on the back wall. It really grabbed me so I asked the lady to make me a copy of it. President Woodrow Wilson said this a while ago;

“Nothing but what you volunteer has the essence of life, the springs
of pleasure in it. These are the things you do because you want to
do them, the things your spirit has chosen for its satisfaction.”

These are great words I think because they are so true. Maybe this is the time of year to satisfy our spirit by reaching out to others as much as we can.

Prayer

Awesome God, I want to serve You by serving Your people. Amen.
