There's a humble attitude and outlook about Jesus that recalls our need to rely on God. Not just recalling that need, but modeling it for us as followers of Jesus.
What better way to be humble than to serve others? Giving of ourselves through service, charity and money is an act of humility because we place part of ourselves out there for the benefit of others. That's what the Giving Tuesday campaign is all about. When we make efforts to build up the lives of neighbors and strangers alike, we also live into the way of Jesus, recasting his image in our own lives.
I am excited about the opportunity that Giving Tuesday provides for non-profits. It enables us to reach out to a generous community on behalf of those on the margins, to advocate and work in support of better lives for all. I invite you to join in the generosity of Giving Tuesday through volunteerism or donation. To help Hillside reach people with Good News, click here.
