“There is gold, and an abundance of jewels;
But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.”
— Proverbs 20:15 NASB
I got a holiday card just after New Years Day from a dear friend. Her gift to me, to her family, and to her other friends this year was that she donated a cow to Heifer International. From the back of her holiday card, I quote:
“The mission of Heifer International is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. Since 1944, Heifer has helped more than 7 million families in more than 125 countries move toward greater self-reliance through the gift of livestock and training in environmentally sound agriculture. The impact of each initial gift is multiplied as recipients agree to ‘pass on the gift’ by giving one or more of their animal’s offspring, or the equivalent, to another in need.”
Heifer International’s web address is: www.heifer.org
I can only imagine what a difference this gift might make on earth. I am so honored to have such a friend.
Friends, if you have the power in your hand to do some good somewhere today … just do it.
