Seed: H.O.P.E.

Hope is much in the news today. We can’t read a political pundit without hearing of hope. This Seed is about a different kind of hope, no, a different format.

In 2003, eight teenage girls in Cincinnati, Ohio started a charity called H.O.P.E.—help other people endure—to raise money for a village three hours south of Johannesburg in South Africa called Langkloof. Most of the children there are orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. There is rampant unemployment. Visit them:

Help other people endure. It’s really quite simple, isn’t it? We all need the hope that help gives us. Just today a friend of mine thanked me for being present as he goes through a difficult relationship. What I offered him was hope . . . for the future, for his choices, for his life.

If ever hopelessness comes to call in your life, consider giving hope to another. You won’t know how good it will make you feel until you do it!

Be content,
