{Compassion} It's your turn to give!

In recent posts, I've mentioned Compassion International's gift catalog, now I want to invite you to be part of the kind of gift-giving that could change someone's life and even their family for generations to come.

'Tis the season of giving. Even though this kind of gift may not sit under your tree with a pretty bow on top, it will bring the Christmas spirit -- the truth that God's kingdom is near -- right into a family's life and hear in South America, Asia, Central America, the Caribbean, or Africa.

Learn more about Compassion's gift catalog.
Jesus literally gave everything. Even his last breath. His momma Mary gave much too as she spent nine months carrying the savior of the world in her belly. And to honor this birth, the life and his life-altering death, Compassion International is hoping to raise $20,000 to change the lives and hearts of children and their families.

You could give $55 for a baby's medical care for an entire year. Or $4 protects a child from parasites. An African family can have seeds for a garden for $10. Other families could be equipped with livestock for $280. You could help children have water {just $23 helps build reservoirs} and access to safe, sanitary bathrooms {$30}.

So, friends, here is your challenge : Consider being one of 10 of my readers to give just $10 to help families you've never met but who have hopes and dreams like you.

Of course, we don't have to stop there if more of you want to give. But I'd love to see our community here make a difference this Christmas. You can browse Compassion's gift catalog here and shop for someone who has needs greater than most of us have ever know.

This is the third post inspired by Compassion International's #ItsAboutGiving campaign. Read about our birthday party for Jesus or my gift-giving love language. Want more? Subscribe to get "Insights" in your inbox. Or follow me on Twitter or Instagram.
