Jesus Taught Us to Clothe the Naked and You Can Help
Jesus Christ taught that our possessions are most valuable when we give them away—especially with His admonition to clothe the naked. Through the act of giving, our clothing can provide the same warmth provided by the swaddling clothes that encircled the newborn King.
THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Collect winter clothing (old or new) for your local homeless shelter.
Learn from a wise king how we should love those in need.
Recently purchased some new clothes? Donate some old ones to a charity or thrift store.
“38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
Learn some basic sewing skills or help someone else to do the same.
Invite your children to go through their clothing and identify two complete outfits that can be donated to a thrift store.
Knit a cap for a newborn baby and donate it to your local hospital.
Buy hand warmers and give them to people working (or living) outside in the cold.
