"Serving God's People"
"Greater is HE that is in me, than he that is in the WORLD"
I pray that by the time this letter reaches you, it finds you in good spirits, mentally and physically. The more we think, the more we should thank God for all His goodness.
Every day on the streets, I see somebody, somewhere struggling with hard times, difficulties, pressures of life. They are never the same in looks, but they are somewhat the same in comparison to their feelings. We all have our own different ways of handling life’s interruptions as it should be. Your hurt may not feel like my hurt, your lost may not be like my lost, your happy may not be like my happy. But one thing for sure, we all have a God given heart.
I read the other day about several inmates that were collecting roadside garbage to reduce their jail time. The supervisor over them collapsed and had a stroke. They rushed to him and realized he was having a medical emergency. One of the inmates borrowed his phone and called for help. The sheriff’s department later thanked the inmate’s for helping to get prompt medical attention for the supervisor, especially since they could have instead neglected him or used the situation to their own advantage to escape.
The kindness of the inmates’ actions is not unlike those of Paul and Silas (in the bible) when they were imprisoned. After they had been stripped, beaten and thrown into prison, an earthquake struck and loosed the chains and shook the hinges off the prison doors. When the jailer awoke, he naturally assumed the prisoners had fled, so he prepared to take his own life (to preempt what would’ve been his punishment for their escape). But when Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself, we are all here!” the jailer was so moved by their ACTIONS. The jailer became curious about the God they worshiped, ultimately coming to believe in Him too.
My point is this, the way we treat others reveals what we believe and how we value ourselves. When we choose to do good instead of harm, our actions might just prompt someone to wonder about the GOD WE SERVE AND LOVE. My question to you is, can people actually SEE the Favor of God all over you by your actions towards them or others by not taking advantage of a situation just because you can? (selah!!, pause and think about it)
This ministry is so appreciative of all the financial supporters and volunteers that help us to serve others. We don’t take it for granted your kindness and genuine love for others as you donate and supply us with the supplies we need to serve. You are always in our prayers and we ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers.
Your support is always needed regardless of how big or small it may be.
Thank you in advance for your time and many efforts to help us to be a blessing to others. Be blessed.
Stay Safe, Stay Sanitized & Stay Sane
P.S. I would love to hear from you, because feedback matters to me.
