We throw them away. They go to a landfill. After all, what can we use them for after the medicine is gone? It’s those empty medicine bottles. Still clean and new like the day they were first used; surely they must be good for something.
They are! You can clean off the labels and glue and send them to Malawi. So often in the small rural hospitals medicine is dispensed into small torn pieces of newspaper for transportation to village homes. Then where to put them? Where will they be safe? Where will they be out of reach of children? Where will they stay clean?
Wouldn’t we like to get our meds in clean safe containers? Oh, that’s right; we do already. Well then, how about helping someone else do the same? We may not be able to go to Malawi, but we can send these little bottles on our behalf.
Send clean medicine bottles to:

And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. (Luke 6:3, KJV)
Prayer – Lord, thank you for showing another small way to help others. Amen
