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.

~ Angela Lipe-Pattengill 

Serve 

WORTHY THOUGHT: Are we selfishly clinging to our rights or are you willingly to serve.

As believers, we should have an attitude that enables us to give up our rights for the good of others- in order to serve others. If we say we follow Christ we must also say we want to live as he lived, we should develop his attitude of humble service, even when we are not likely to get recognition for our efforts. 

When we feel the pain of our sacrifice- we know that we are really giving up something important.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. -Philippians 2:3-4

Homeless

  

Betty…
Incessant chattering
Everything she sees 
Is an update…
Yet she’s looking
Outside of herself
Watching 
For a need
Not missing a lick
In her neon
I see kindness
A genuine concern
Willingness to learn
Generosity unheard of
For the homeless
She brings out
The bitch in me
That stray dog
Lurking within
Hidden
Until
Goodness 
Like a bone
Threatens
The flesh
She’s grown
On me
Seeing her best
Recognizing Christ
In this
And knowing
How He
Uses us to
Sharpen one another 
Ridding our hearts
Of hesitation 
To love
And be loved
Unleashing love
Lavishing His love
On us
Because we are
Homeless
Without
Him.

What does spreading the “Love” look like? Buy a coffee, a meal, or groceries for someone. Pass out $ with an encouraging note. Pray for someone. Visit a nursing home, a hospital, a shopping mall, a grocery store, or a street corner and engage with someone and really listen to their story. Rake or mow someone’s yard. Take someone a meal. Flash your pearly whites and give someone a smile, a compliment, a word of encouragement. Get Creative!
