Day 1 - Freely give.

December 1 thru December 25 I am posting about movies which reflect each day's focus for #LightTheWorld.

Day 1 

"Freely ye have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8)

Since this is kicking off the Christmas season, it's fitting that I start with a classic Christmas movie! In It's a Wonderful Life (1946), George Bailey (James Stewart) spends his life serving the community and helping others in times of need. Later, he is given a rare opportunity to see the impact he made. His life made a difference.

And in this classic gem, Follow Me, Boys! (1966), as the community discusses what to do about the boys running wild about town, Lem Siddons (Fred MacMurray), eager to impress Vida (Vera Miles), volunteers to form a Boy Scout troop and serve as scoutmaster. Little does he know he will serve the troop--give freely of his time--for years to come and will be a positive influence for many young men.

Simple things can lead to big outcomes, and although we don't always know the long-reaching effects of our small acts of kindness, they still add light to the world.

Today, I am writing a thank you note to someone who helped me.
