Love God, Love people.
I have to answer for a lot of things in my life but I do not want to answer for this…
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” (Matthew 25:34-46)
Today I saw this picture on FB about a care package for homeless people. I love this! Things they need, and some good stuff. Who doesn’t like a package of applesauce :) or a warm hands and feet?
It’s getting cold, and it’s only going to get colder. I love the City of Detroit, but you know what I love more? It’s people. His people. I can’t bring every homeless person to my house and cloth and feed them, but those who come into my sight, I can give them a bag of love.
So instead of presents, I want things to fill up these bags. I’d like to make 400. 100 for every month to give away. That seems a lot but not really. I can’t do it alone, but I know I am not alone, because I know together we are better so I know I don’t have to… I’ve already reached out to people for toothbrushes and toothpaste, crackers and peanut butter, and applesauce, and other things needed J
I am excited to see God move <3 o:p="">3>
