40 Acts of Stewardship: Day 4 - 999

[/i]A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’ (John 13:34–35 NIV)[i] Today's act is incredibly practical and simple: find a need and meet it. Now. Today. Put the word out in your household or your friendship group today – ask what needs people have right now. It might be simple: picking up some shopping, fixing a leaky tap, or a quick lift somewhere. They might just need a hug or a listening ear. Whatever small thing you can do for someone else today, do it. 40acts is a community of over 75,000 people, and all of us have individual needs. Build community online today – find a fellow 40activist and see if they have a need you could meet. Phone up your local foodbank/ church/refuge/homeless shelter and find out what supplies they're running low on today. It might be food, bedding, craft supplies or loo rolls. Head to your local shops and stock up, then drop a care package round to them this afternoon. or Facebook/40 Acts

@Corbin5 @Reine25 My husband is a member of the Knights of Columbus at our church. They're Lenten Mission is to put aside one item per day during Lent for the food bank. At the end of Lent there should be 40 items, times the number of Knights that participate. Since my husband is a lazy sod, I do it. I found some good discounts yesterday so bought a few things for the box.
