Here’s an excellent poem that I found in Maryanne’s reading book.
I found a few practical examples of ways to help others.
If any little word of mine
May make a life the brighter,
If any little song of mine
May make a heart the lighter,
God help me speak that little word
And take my bit of singing,
And drop it in some lonely vale
To set the echoes ringing.
If any little care of mine
May make a friend’s the fleeter,
If any lift of mine may ease
The burden of another,
God give me love and care and strength
To help my toiling brother.
"Bear one another*s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ." (Galations 4:2)
"Freely ye have recieved, freely give." (Matthew 10:8)
"Let us not love in word; neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth." (I John 3:18)
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." (John 13:35)
