More Than Enough

A couple of weeks ago, an apartment building caught fire in town and 15 families lost basically everything they own. The next morning, we saw something amazing.

This community came together like I've never seen before. People were buying groceries and taking clothes and furniture and dishes and small appliances and gift cards to the apartment complex. They converted the clubhouse into what looked like a huge flea market, but the stuff wasn't for sale - all donated by the community. Don't get me wrong, there was some not-so-nice stuff there. But for the most part, decent items were donated. Some even went and bought items, like 15 toasters. It was pretty amazing to watch love in action. People donated so generously that the apartment managers asked that people stop donating!

Kind of reminded me of this story. I love it when the Word of God comes to life.
