Food For Thought

I was reading through Matt 25:34-46 today and I got to thinking... Am I doing any of that?

Seriously... When was the last time you took that homeless guy to lunch?  When was the last time you gave that single Mom a gift card so she could take her kids shopping for new clothes?  When was the last time you took some homemade food to the terminally ill in the hospital?

Don't try to blame your church... You are the church.

Just a little something I was challenged with today. 

I mean, I'm free until 3pm during the week.  What can I do to make my life count for something?

Maybe this week you could look for 1 way (you can do more if you want) to offer food to the hungry, clothe the naked or visit the sick.

Who knows, maybe if you take the focus off yourself and focus on others your problems will fade away?

  1. AJ -- very insightful post here. It is something that we so often look for our government or other organizations to take care of.

    But, as you point out, Jesus commanded us to do these things.
