Think About Others

Each one of you should not only look on your own interest but also to the interest of others. This is the memory verse from Philippians 2:4 that we are studying this week. It is very fitting for the situation in our country right now, just a week after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan in International communities) struck the Visayas islands. Many lives has been lost and properties extensively damaged by the super typhoon and the storm surge.

I asked my children what they learned from this verse and how they can apply it in their lives. Here are their replies:

– Help others by giving donation such as clothes, blankets, toys, towels, food.

– By sharing your money and buying items like food and water for them.

– Volunteer to go to these places and bring them the donations.

These difficult moments are perfect opportunities to teach our children what it really means to think about others. It is not just something we discuss at home but something that we actually do. We have packed our old and new clothes, shoes and blankets into 2 boxes which we will send to donation centers soon.

Think about others is something that the Bible instructs us to do and catastrophes are opportunities to share blessings and God’s love to people within our reach.
