Jesus would want us to help those in need

info@islandpacket.comDecember 8, 2013 

In response to the letter, "What would Jesus want for a Christmas present," I have a wonderful idea.

It is a tradition among my siblings to exchange restaurant gift cards (since we don't know what else to give). This year, however, I am suggesting we donate to local charities instead.

This way, it makes us feel better about ourselves, and it helps others have a Christmas to enjoy. I believe Jesus would be proud.
