Bless others and be blessed

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed” (Provers 11:25)
One of the great things about the book of Proverbs is that it is filled with short bits of wisdom to help us realign ourselves with the Lord. A few weeks ago, the Spanish Catholic Center, along with the help of parishioners of St. Ann’s and Blessed Sacrament parishes, donated to give 500 children the blessing of having a gift on Christmas. It made me think of the truth of this Proverb. The generous will prosper and those who refresh others will also be refreshed. I’m so thankful for all the parishioners that give freely to our community members. I’m also thankful that, because of their love for God, they are being refreshed as they refresh and bless others through their generosity. As we approach Christmas, let’s ask: how can I be refreshing to others?
