Each week we post a scripture or a quotation we have come across during the week, or a simple prayer that we have reflected upon or that has spoken to us in some way. It may be specific to the needs of our partners or the children, or indeed a request from any of our supporters.
You may wish to use our thoughts or reflections in your prayers for the forgotten children of Eastern Europe.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give” (Winston Churchill)
It is so often said that today’s society about “me, myself and I”. When we look at the big picture this can seem to be too close to the truth – the greed for wealth, power, influence; the determination to have “my” point of view heard louder and more forthright than “yours”. Yet the irony is that probably every single one of us knows or has encountered someone (or more likely more than one person) who gives of themselves to others more than could ever be expected. So, would it not be so refreshing to hear and see more often the good news of how “I” is all about “you”. It’s what we see with ChildAid partners day in and day out – and it’s wonderfully refreshing.
