The Joy of Helping the Needy
Inviting the Stranger
“I was a stranger and you invited me in.” Matthew 25:35
Showing God’s love to a broken world begins with having a servant’s heart. Consider organizing a work day for your church to go into your community and paint walls at an elementary school, take dinner to fire/police departments, or plant flowers at a nursing home. And for those times when you encounter a homeless person, why not create “Bags of Hope” filled with items they might use, (bottled water, gloves, socks), and keep the bags in your car so you will be ready the next time you meet someone in need.
