Instant Perspective, Part Four
Charity begins today.
Today somebody is suffering,
today somebody is in the street,
today somebody is hungry.
Our work is for today,
yesterday has gone,
tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today to make Jesus known, loved, served fed, clothed, sheltered.
Do not wait for tomorrow.
Tomorrow we will not have them if we do not feed them today.
Sometime ago a woman came with her child to me and said: “Mother, I went to two or three places to beg for food, for we have not eaten for three days but they told me that I was young and I should work and earn my living. No one gave me anything.”
I went to get some food for her and by the time I returned, the baby in her arms had died of hunger.
“Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.”
~I John 2:6~
I pray you feel a little less comfortable today…in a good way.
"We have only today to make Jesus known"
Love that…and agree that is such an important perspective to have. It is safer for a lot of people to always be making plans to share Jesus…getting everything ready…knowledge, personal healing etc. When all we really need to do is just get to it. Now.
Because God has already equipped us was the last part. Sorry, my fingers are spazzy today!
