5 Days of Serving Others – Reaching the World

Welcome back to the last day of our series “5 Days of Serving Others through the Holidays!

Every day this week we explored a different way to celebrate Christmas. As a matter of fact, we’re turning Christmas around by suggesting ways to gift those around you with something that most likely won’t cost much. I think that whatever you do spend, however, you’ll find to be so worth your while…

During this series "5 Days of Serving Others through the Holidays", we're looking at using the gift of service to bless those we love!

During the past week, we’ve been suggesting ways to gift those around you with acts of service (if you’re familiar with Gary Chapman’s book “The Five Love Languages“, you’ll know what I mean).


This mini-series presented ways to serve:

Serving Others During the Holidays – Reaching the World

Sometimes the concept of reaching the world is so overwhelming to us that we just shut down. But a more pro-active way to look at it might be through the lens of that famous inquiry about how to eat the elephant.

Just taking on “one bite at a time” is an awesome – and even Biblical – approach to being salt and light in a world that is in such desperate need.

Admittedly, reaching the world takes a little money. I’m not apologizing for that, tho: it is what it is. I think, however, that you’ll find equal amounts of time and talents involved in this last area we’re exploring this week.

Reaching the world always starts at home…let’s just not let it end there, too.

So here are some simple steps to take to reach the world during the Christmas season. (Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to this time of year, tho.)


Hey, are you on Instagram? We’ll be continuing with this spirit of giving over there, too! If you have a visual idea for, or an example of, “the act of service as a gift” this Christmas season, share it over on Instagram and tag it #servingothersatChristmas. And don’t forget to tag us, too @patandcandy2. I can’t wait to see them 😉 !

And, of course, we’d love to hear your neat ideas in the comments – so share away! I hope this concept of giving the gift of service this Christmas inspired you to explore other ways to be generous, now and all year long.

    These are the awesome ways to help others. As this is the winter season, I usually donate warm clothes to poor kids.

      That’s wonderful, Sapana, and so needed. Even in the South, where we live, it gets cold enough for coats. Our library and bank has collection boxes for them…
      Happy New Year…stay warm 😉
