Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil
but what is good.
Anyone who does what is good
is from God.
Anyone who does what is evil
has not seen God.

Operation Christmas Child -“Irina and a Pencil Sharpener” https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/shoebox-stories-irina-and-a-pencil-sharpener/ (Yesterday, David and I made another shopping trip for school supplies. We were able to make purchases for a couple who wrote a check and allowed us to do the shopping for them. Of course, we also made some additional purchases for ourselves too. Once again, many people who saw us commented about me making purchases for my classroom. We were able to tell them about Operation Christ Child. Some knew what we meant, but some did not! What a joy and blessing it was to help them understand OCC. Again, I apologized to the cashier for the many items that had to be checked out individually, but as we talked, she told us how bless she was to check us out and learn about the shoeboxes. That just doesn’t happen every time we check out! The lady and young girl in front of us saw us putting the items on the counter and got interested. She shared that her children have a garage sale and use the money they earn to pack shoeboxes. Last time, her two children packed 17 boxes! We had the opportunity to encourage them to continue. That was another blessing. I wish we could have heard the conversation then had when they left….)
