“Have I ignored the needs of the poor, turned my back on the indigent,Taken care of my own needs and fed my own face while they languished?
Wasn’t my home always open to them?Weren’t they always welcome at my table?
Have I ever left a poor family shivering in the cold when they had no warm clothes? Didn’t the poor bless me when they saw me coming,knowing I’d brought coats from my closet?
Job 31:16-20 MSG

Are we in America better than the least of these?
Or is God giving us the opportunity to rise to the occasion in the name of our Lord Jesus, who said, “Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me?
In Africa, India, and all over the world, there are precious ones needing our help today. If you would like to know how you can help, please comment. Thank you so much in advance.
