Planting Seeds and Throwing Rocks


widen your circle

Tonight some friends and I were talking about sharing, helping others, etc.  One of the topics was on how to know to whom and when to give financial help.  One friend said most of us are pretty comfortable with our circle of friends.  We know each other and have a lot in common.  It’s basically easy to help each other.  But maybe we need to ‘widen our circle’ of friends.  As we get to know others we find new people with new needs.  Helping others shouldn’t simply be about giving to charity or helping a ’cause’ but mainly about loving a person…who has a name and a specific situation…one that there is no map or guidebook to tell you exactly ‘how’ to help.  But of course that is messy and uncomfortable and all the other things most of us avoid at all costs.  And yet…that’s love.
