“BUT YOU GAVE ME TWO!"

cute kids 1

A friend of mine who was working in the Dominican Republic with Habitat for Humanity had befriended a small boy named Etin. He noticed that when Etin wore a shirt at all it was always the same dirty, tattered one. A box of used clothes had been left at the camp, and my friend found two shirts in it that were in reasonably good shape and about Etin’s size, so he gave them to the grateful boy. A few days later he saw an

other boy wearing one of the shirts. When he next met up with Etin he explained that the shirts were meant for him. Etin just looked at him and said, “But you gave me two!”

A verse in the New Testament on charity reads: “He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise” (Luke 3:11).

If you have excess, consider sharing with one who has none. This, I feel, is also pertinent with the experience, knowledge, success, and understanding we gain throughout our journey of life. Just share a little. May we be as Etin, and proclaim: “But you gave me two!”
