May the LORD give strength to his people! May the LORD bless his people with peace! (Psalms 29:11 NRSV)

There is a wonderful story about Carey Barker who used to play football for the Washington Redskins. One night after a game Carey Barker was walking in the snow to relax. He came upon a lad sitting on a curb and crying. "What's the matter, son?" Carey asked. "My daddy sent me to the store to buy a loaf of bread," said the boy, "and I have lost the dollar he gave me. And I'm afraid to go home."

Carey took the child into a store and purchased the bread for him. The lad departed, saying, "Gee, Mister, I wish you wuz my daddy." Carey Barker said he walked the streets that night trying to find another boy who needed a dollar and a dad.

There is nothing in life that will bring a good feeling into your life like giving to another.


Dear God, you have given me so much. May I also be generous. In Jesus' name, Amen.
