When I walked out of the door toward my car, a gentleman, and fellow member, was standing next to dozens of bags filled with yarn. There were 1000s of skeins of yarn. We have a craft group at church that makes scarves for children all over the world. We have plans to make 100s of scarves for mission teams to take on the summer trips. This gift of yarn is such a huge blessing! It’s such an unexpected gift!
So—this gift has turned into a blessing. You ask, ‘What about someone’s sickness?’
This gentleman was asked to remove these huge bags from the home of a hoarder.
The definition of hoarding is, ‘to accumulate for preservation, future use, etc., in a hidden or carefully guarded place.’ Hoarding is an illness. This woman has more yarn than the thousands already brought to us.
So—this sickness of stockpiling more yarn than can be used in any one person’s life time will be turned into multiple blessing for people all over the world.
“Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it” (1 Peter 4:10 MSG).
“You will be glorifying God through your generous gifts. For your generosity to them will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 9:13 (NLT)
