A family in need and two teenage boys who recognized that need

Someone asked if they knew of a family in need and they immediately stepped up to the plate. They went shopping, personally selected each item, and delivered them on Saturday.
More often than not, I'm fussing at them about their grades, homework, messy rooms, and dirty laundry.  I worry that they don't "get it."  ("It" being responsibility, maturity, and/or helping others...basically not being self-centered but Christ-centered)

Watching them carry their presents to the truck on Saturday reassured me that they are "getting it."

Isn't that just wonderful? Yes, I think they are getting it.

You and Bob have done a marvelous job of instilling Christian love in your boys. Oh, yes, they get it because they have seen mom and dad living it out.
