This year marks the tenth year that Haddock Baptist Church has participated in Operation Christmas Child sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse Ministry. This ministry sends gift-wrapped shoe boxes filled with small gifts packed by individuals and churches like ours to children around the globe. These shoe boxes packed with love are a wonderful reminder of how a small gift can make a tremendous difference in the life of another person.
It was a special blessing to watch children bring boxes to the altar this past week. The scene reminds me that God desires for us to give him what we have. In the Gospel story of John 6, no one except Jesus believed a small boy’s lunch could feed a multitude. The story reminds us that no gift is insignificant when placed in the hands of Jesus.
