Easter is a very happy time in the church’s calendar because it means that the Lord has been resurrected. He rose from the dead and this is our true and divine proof that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. The Make a Difference Foundation wants to celebrate this Easter in a way that sheds light on the true meaning of the holiday, but also in a way that gives to those of us who need it most. In the spirit of Christianity, Easter should be a time of celebration as well as a time of giving. The darkest times of the year have passed with the crucifixion and now we are in a time of rejoice that our Savior walks among us.
When thinking of what to do will all of that joy this year, think about the organizations who are looking to help those who need our help. This could be Homes for Veterans, the Eloise Cooking Pot Food Bank, or any other organization that you feel really embodies the spirit of Christian giving. Our Lord had little more than the clothing on His back, but after all of this time millions of people still follow in His footsteps in the hopes of following Him to Heaven. Giving to others is a great way to show who you feel aligned with most. They say that people will know that we are Christians by our love, and this is true. Love those who need more love and help those who cannot help themselves.
As this Easter comes and passes it should be a time of reflection. Think about what your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did for you this season and how He beat death. The Lord gave up everything for your sins, so giving a little to those who need it can be a very charitable and Christian action. It does not need to be a lot of money, only what you can afford, but it will make you feel good knowing that you are following in the light of Christ and that you are following His wishes. This Church is not build on bread alone, but on the kind people who feel compelled in their heart to give. That is what you should keep in mind this season and if you find that you cannot spare the money, spare your prayers and thoughts to those in need.
Have an awesome Resurrection Sunday!
