There is nothing I like better than a Saturday with no scheduled activity, but this past Saturday Proverbs 3:27 had me out and about all day: Do not withhold good from those who need it, when you have the ability to help (NET Bible).
I had the honor of serving as parking marshal for the 6th Annual Bikers for Boobees charity ride. The ride generates money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Participants ranged from touring club members, motorcycle club members, survivors, families of survivors, and those still battling the disease. I had the pleasure of telling 150+ riders where to park – sort of like telling a cowboy where to leave his horse. This is a unique event with participants who are some of the most compassionate people in the metroplex.
That evening, my wife and I attended the Christian Community Action (CCA) Season of Hope 2014 fundraiser in Lewisville. Created to serve the Denton County area, CCA helps those in need with healthcare, food, clothing, and living expenses. A different type of service at this event, but a service critical to those in the community who need a hand up – not a hand out – at difficult times in their lives.
I had the ability to help. Two totally different dress codes. One great result. JGW.
