The Towel

A worn towel changed my outlook forever.One dayit was my turn to deliver donations to Unity house, an apartment complex for women who had come through drug detox. Most were setting up homes from scratch and lacked basic supplies.
"Mary" one of the women called, "here is a towel for you"A new resident at Unity house, Mary dashed forward and took the frayed towel with eager hands.
"Thank you!" she said joyfully."This morning I wanted to take a shower, but I didn't have towel." She caressed the terry cloth as though it were made of gold.
I thought with shame of my linen closet--so full that towels fell out on my head.
Every closet in my house was the same. Why should I stash things away when these women needed them?
I went home and cleaned out the linen closet. Then my clothes closets and kitchen cabinets. Perfectly good items I hadn't used in years came to light. It took three trips to get every thing to Unity House.
God has blessed me abundantly. Now I know why: so I can share.
Good stewardship doesn't lie in stashing and saving but in giving.
A priceless lesson from an old towel !!
