With all the problems in the world-governmental chaos, hunger, poverty, sexual exploitation, lack of educational opportunities, war, natural disasters, diseases and illnesses-it’s hard to know where to start. But our call is to help our fellow man.
Coach and I recently made a commitment to sponsor a little boy through World Vision. We donate to our church and few other non-profits. We participate in groups that fund raise for amazing non-profits. And we serve with our hands when we are able.
We do so many small things, but do they make any difference? What about giving a small donation to a street musician?
This one little girl’s simple action to help a musician led to unexpected joy for her and those around her. One coin and the beautiful music and words of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” came alive.
We adore Thee
God of glory
Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
Hail Thee to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day
Mortals join the mighty chorus
Which the morning stars began
Father love is reigning o’er us
Brother love binds man to man
Ever singing march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music lifts us Son ward
In the triumph song of life
Her action lead to God’s joy being proclaimed to all those around her!
