My little guy (the blond one) and his big brother packed up their toys in a huge dufflebag, filling to burst. Our destination, Kenya. They wanted to share their treasures with those who had little. During our outreach we shared Jesus in villages, bomas, orphanages, streets, and schools. We gave of ourselves. And my little one gave away all of his baby toys to the abandoned babies ravaged by AIDS in the orphanage. Nose to nose, sharing Jesus' love with a smile.
Can we outgive? Absolutely not. I may not have baby toys in a memory box to cherish. Instead, I have a photo and a memory of my youngest learning what it means to love like Jesus.
