Today somebody is suffering. Today somebody is in the street. Today somebody is hungry.
Our work is for today, yesterday has gone, tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today to make Jesus known, loved, served, fed, clothed, sheltered.
Do not wait for tomorrow.
Tomorrow we will not have them
if we do not feed them today.
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
Acts 20:35 (ESV)
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
James 1:27 (ESV)
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
Once we take our eyes away from ourselves, our interest, and ambitions, then we will clearly see Jesus all around us.
