Charity 

WORTHY THOUGHT: Charity begins today. 

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.

-Mother Teresa 


Proverbs 19:17(ESV)

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.

Light 


Worthy Thought: You cannot make yourself the light of the world. Jesus says you are the light of the world because of your relationship with him. 

When Jesus again spoke to the people, he said, ” I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ( John 8:12 NIV )

When Moses lead His people out of Egypt, God’s presence was with them. God provided a pillar of fire for their protection and guidance. (Exodus 13:21,22) 

Jesus brings God’s presence, protection and guidance to us.

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16 NIV)

Just as the moon has no light of its own, reflecting the light of the sun, so are believers to reflect the Light of Christ so that all can see it in us. The Light is evident to others by the good deeds we do in faith and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

A State Of Neutral 

  
Warm concrete to snuggle up to

Pavement pillows for the down and out

Human beings treated like trash! 

These are humble people

Hungry more for eye contact than …

A Happy Meal

A glimpse of kindness for the homeless

Can we look them in the eye and smile as we walk by? 

Our day is busy and we have no time to stop and listen

I judge them too

When I’m in a hurry and don’t want to feel or 

Deal with their pain!!! 

I make excuses to why they are there…..

We all do 

It is the very grace of God that we are not

They were children with hope for a wonderful life….like the rest of us

But Addictions….alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, pornography, adultery, 

stealing, lying, embezzlement…. 

hopelessness, poor up bringing, low self esteem, 

mental illness, disease, time in jail, lack of education, poor choices, teenage pregnancy, incest, rape, stupidity…..

A combination of many mentioned contributed to their demise

We pray for them

We listen to them

Feed them

Laugh with them

Love them

But we can’t bring them home like a dog or cat….

We leave them in their state of neutral

We drive off and they are transported in our hearts with a name and a prayer 

And a seed of faith planted for their future

These people have names, stories,

Beauty and beasts within….just like us 

Jesus had no place to lay his head

WOW….He gets it!!!!! 

We really don’t 

but that’s ok

He doesn’t expect us to relate 

He expects us to extend Him to them
