This is a good one! I get so excited to share the word of the Lord and all it's fascination and glory. Dig deep into this one! Today focus on Charity. When was the last time you gave selflessly? Giving without expectation of receiving something back? But did you know but giving to others freely, the Lord is so abundantly blessed by that and will reward you in His own way? That is the joy of giving unconditionally.
It's hard in these economic times to give freely all the time but know without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord sees it and knows your heart. He will provide and give you the provision to provide for others if you are diligent in it. Go forth this Christmas season and see where you can be a blessing. Ask the Lord to show you with your own eyes or hear it with your ears where you can be a blessing to others today. God bless you.
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
“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. 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, 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.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “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.’
