“But You Gave Me Two”

Quote 3D Logo

A friend who was working in the Dominican Republic with Habitat for Humanity had befriended a small boy named Etin.  He noticed that when Etin wore a shirt at all it was always the same dirty, tattered one.  A box of used clothes had been left at the camp, and my friend found two shirts in it that were in reasonably good shape and about Etin’s size, so he gave them to the grateful boy.  A few days later he saw another boy wearing one of the shirts.  When he next met up with Etin he explained that the shirts were meant for him.  Etin just looked at him and said, “But you gave me two!”

  1. Love this reminder about how we are to meet the needs of others.

  2. Love! And a little child shall lead them!…Blessings Brother Steve! 🙂

  3. Wonderful story about generosity! Most people have so much, yet share so little! This little boy is certainly a precious example to us all.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
