As you have done it to the least of these
As you have done it to these least of these...
I know each one of us are decorating for fall and enjoying the cooler weather. 2015 is nearing an end and during this year there have been a lot of wonderful accomplishments in this ministry. So many people have opened their hearts and helped us financially make a difference in the lives of others. My motto is, “Help someone who cannot pay you back.” Think about the importance of reaching out and touching the lives of people that you do not know and perhaps will never meet. And yet because of your Christian faith as we follow the example of Jesus we know that this is what we should be doing. Each one of us has been blessed more than we ever deserve and because God has been so good to us we know that we must fulfill the command of Jesus. We look at Matthew 25 and sometimes we want to try to read around it just like some of those people in this parable did. “Lord when did we see you hungry and thirsty and naked? When did we see you sick and in prison and come unto you?” Jesus would come back and say, “as you have done it to the least of these you have done it unto me.” Every time you help someone whether it be with food or preparing Christmas gifts For Operation Christmas Joy Jesus said you have done it for me. People all over the country are preparing Christmas gifts to be distributed in Panama this December.
Always Be Ready to Help Someone Who Cannot Pay You Back
Isn’t it a beautiful time of the year when we hear the different birds sing their song. As I sit in the mornings having my coffee on my porch I also hear the Coyotes barking and the owls as they hoot. There is a woodpecker on one of our trees that is there every day pecking away. Then there are the hummingbirds as they fly around the feeders entertaining us. We are now coming into the fall time of the year when the leaves will start turning their many colors truly showing the handiwork of God. We are preparing for the different seasons and upcoming holiday season of Thanksgiving followed by Christmas and New Year’s. It is easy to get sidetracked as we listen to the terrible news from around the world of wars, and terrorist sowing their havoc upon other people.
