“Jesus Reached Out to Others,” Friend, December 2021
When Jesus was young, it wasn’t safe for His family to stay in Judea. So Mary, Joseph, and Jesus left their home and went to Egypt. They were refugees.
Jesus understood what it was like to not belong. He reached out to everyone, even when others wouldn’t. He healed lepers and ate with sinners. He showed love to everyone.
Some of my new friends are from Afghanistan. They are really nice. On Christmas, we took new coats to them. They were so happy to not be cold anymore. But more importantly, they were happy to know they were not forgotten.
