“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ”(Gal 6:2)
Eighty-year-old Walter Erickson, a retired teacher got enriched by the graciousness of his loving students and mates which really unfolds the true fulfillment of the loving law of Christ – Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ!These students has to get into the shoes of this 80 year old man to acknowledge his need of the hour and did walk those extra miles to collect that $13,905 for gaining those regards “‘Who are these girls? What kind of parents do they have that they could be so caring and compassionate?’”
Teaching children the importance of giving to others and caring for the needy in their trouble time, whether time, love,money or energy, is one of the most valuable character traits in a child of God. The Bible itself is a Book of Giving! Giving up the very own life to save the least and the lost! It doesn’t matter if you have a lot to give or a little, it’s the heart that matters! You never know how a small act of kindness can draw someone closer to God and we become a way o fulfill the gracious law of Love , which our Savior wants us to live with!
As these students of Champlin Park left a permanent impression on their substitute teacher, let us too continue to live in the New Covennat commandment made out of Pure Love In the Cross to please God!
“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased”(Heb 13:16)
