10 If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
11 The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
As you seek to bless your loved ones through gift-giving this Christmas season, may I challenge you to also reach out to a child in need somewhere beyond your personal circle of loved ones? You could change a life.
