That's what is wrong with society.."It aint my problem, let somebody else do it". I'm in my 30's and I can remember every minister we ever had has been in my parents and grandparents home. We invited them over for dinner or supper. I can remember my mother going to the nursing home every Sunday morning and picking up an elderly woman to take to church. I can remember going to see people in nursing homes, hospitals, and homes. And, participating in Christmas caroling to the shut-ins. What happened to doing good deeds? Now if someone dont get paid to do something, they won't hardly do it. That's a shame! These younger generations need to taught how to give back...but it all starts at home. Churches have even slacked in the past years. I can remember when ministers and their wives went and visited...now they designate people within the church to do that job. I can understand if you have a huge congregration, but they knew that before taking the job. I knew a woman in Grv that was very wealthy. She gave money to her church for years. When she got sick, the church basically forgot about her. I won't say which church or what her name was, but she started watching a minister on TV. I think she called the number on the screen and he drove several hundred miles to see her. In the end, she left that minister in her will.
