Instruments of Love...

When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed. We have refused to be instruments of love in the hands of God to give the poor a piece of bread, to offer them a dress with which to ward off the cold. It has happened because we did not recognize Christ when, once more, He appeared under the guise of pain, identified with a man numb from the cold, dying of hunger, when He came in a lonely human being, in a lost child in search of a home.

Powerful, precious and so true!

Each must give and do as the LORD leads and often many times people do not. My husband and I are honored to give out of what we have to all whom the LORD leads us to give to and that can be through church, ministries, on line in the grocery store, at the gas pump, through homeless shelters and through compassion international and others. We love to give because our greatest GIVER is GOD.

"For God so loved the world that he GAVE his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.". (capitalization is for emphasis).

Love and blessings to you and your family dear one.

Lord, I pray that You would give each one of us direction in how to be Your arms and legs and heart!
May You be glorified in us and through us as believers!

Thank you for always being such a bold Christian. We need that so much more in our day and age, rather then this watered down Christianity. : )

And Love the new blog.
