How many of us have donated money to causes that are near and dear to our hearts... like The Smile Train, the Red Cross, the Boys & Girls Clubs, etc. Who on here ever supported school fundraisers, or the Boy and Girl Scouts? It's as easy as buying a box of girl scout cookies or anything else that helps to raise funds for these organizations.

How many of us have been involved in non-profit organizations where we volunteered many hours and helped to raise money for hospitals, cancer research, etc.

And is there anyone who has ever done a 5-K walk or marathon for charity? I'm sure there are many of you.

And, finally, how many of us have prayed for others for healings, their finances, or whatever they may ask for at the time?

Is this God's Will that we do this? Well, no doubt about it... because when we do these things, we are thinking of others and not so much about ourselves... and I'm sure He's very pleased with our efforts.
Well lets see I did this and that and oh no not that......LOL excellent post my friend.
