I was doing some research on my computer this morning and discovered a blog that got my interest. It was by a Christian youth group that traveled to Washington DC this past week. They made the trip to help others in a variety of ways while also finding opportunities to share their faith. You can check out the "One Step Closer ’06" blog at http://onestepcloser06.blogspot.com. Make sure you submit a comment of encouragement to them while you are reading their posts.
There are many other youth groups just like this team that are unselfishly giving their time for others. It is great we have parents, teachers and leaders that teach the importance of giving and encourage our youth to put it into practice. It was clear to me that this group of young people didn’t take the time to help because their parents made them go. They were enthusiastic to go and do what they could for others they didn’t even know.
Doesn’t that give you hope for the future? Doesn’t it encourage you to find other ways you can give to others? It should!
