Has someone ever asked you to share something with them, and you said “NO! It’s
mine!” Sometimes sharing can be hard. It feels like giving away something you
planned to keep all for yourself. But sharing can be fun. Sharing can help others,
and make them feel special and loved.
When someone shares something with you, it feels great! And sharing something
with someone can feel great too. God asks us all to do good to others, and to share
with them what we have. Sharing doesn’t mean giving away everything that belongs to you; it simply means
giving something to help someone else. You can share your things, you can share your time, you can share your
money, you can share your love. What can you think of to share with someone today?
No act of kindness,
no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Do not forget to do good to others. And share with them what you have.
Sharing is Fun!
“Be kind and loving to each other.”
