Proverbs 22:9 - A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
I went shopping the other day,
It seemed a good idea at the time,
But couldn’t find a thing to buy,
I didn’t spend one thin dime.
I came home feeling righteous
Frugal and quite proud
Not adding to my overstuffed closet
Made we want to shout out loud.
And then I looked in the paper
For something interesting to read
And saw stories of hurting children
And many people in need.
Suddenly I knew why I hadn't
Made a purchase to add to my store
It was the good Lord saying
“Others in this world need it much more.”
I'll take my next shopping spree
Where hunger and pain seem to thrive
And through charity and churchHelp one family, one person survive.
