The Best Thing is Helping People

"The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love" (Galatians 5:6).

We have returned from a good evening at the Parkview Terrace apartments. The Contact Church (with help from some friends from the Garnett Church of Christ) held a cookout for residents of the apartment complex late this afternoon and evening. We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, played with the children, and talked with the adults. Our son Christopher loved participating. He had the time of his life playing basketball and running around. Then he helped serve hotdogs to other kids. On the way home we were talking about the good time we had enjoyed with the people at Parkview Terrace, when Christopher commented, "The best thing is helping people!" I couldn't have said it better myself.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I love discovering what my son has learned. Sometimes it's a very nice surprise.

Terry,

I have learned a lot about Christian living from kids.
