Not everything in the Bible is wrong.
You have to read it carefully.
Luke had it right.
We receive the greatest gifts in life when we GIVE.
Last month, my son won some type of contest and was offered free subscriptions, and he subscribed to several he thought I would like. Honestly, there isn't usually much I'm interested in popular magazines.
There was ONE article, however, in this month's Oprah, I found worthwhile.
It was entitled "Right on the Money" and was 18 meaningful ways to spread the wealth this season.
I'm often trying to figure out ways to contribute to society - it's difficult for me to volunteer at agencies or homes because of my MCS. I can't be inside public buildings or other people's homes for long. So I really liked many of the options offered.
Here is portion of the list:
1. HRC seeks to improve the lives of LGBT Americans by advocating for equal rights and benefits in the workplace. Help send an anti-bullying DVD produced by the LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign Foundation to an elementary school teacher. Go to www.hrc.org $5
www.heifer.org There are many other animals that you can give! $30
10. Cover one year of medical expenses - including vaccines, sanitary napkins, and dental care - for an aspiring female student in a developing country like Nepal, so she can attend school regularly and be the first in her family to graduate secondary school www.shesthefirst.org $55
13. Help grant a terminally ill adult's wish www.dreamfoundation.org $100
