Ministering To Others

It is amazing what we can learn from those around us if we just look.

For instance, even raking a yard, delivering a meal, or spending an afternoon with an older person in your life might provide a wealth of learning opportunities. They are real living history.

I'll never forget the day that I sat in my Great-Grandmother's bedroom brushing her hair. I think it was perhaps the first glimpse I had of the experience this dear woman held. For her, I was pampering her and keeping her company. For me, she was sharing her memory of first hearing the reports of the sinking of the "unsinkable" Titanic and instilling within a deep respect for the tragedy and sadness of a nation.

You might come across an older man who has vivid war memories to share, or a wise older woman who can share her lessons of running a home and a family during an era when times were tight and there wasn't always "enough to go around".

Ministering to Others is an every day living, every day learning experience that will help others, yes, but the benefit to your child will be immeasurable.
