Christmas Challenge

It's easy to be cavalier about money when you have it.

It's easy to give love when you are filled with it.

It's easy to help others when you have time.

It's easy to give generously when you're overflowing.

Easy stuff is, well, easy.

The challenge is to do something difficult. The challenge in life is to give, help, offer and love when you don't feel like it, when you're sure you can't do it, when you're positive it will zap you dry.

The widow who gave her few coins epitomizes our directive to give and trust whether or not we have some to spare.

I am going to challenge myself to follow her example.
