Reaching Beyond the Walls...

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same
measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38 (KJV)

Our church recently visited the Union Gospel Mission in Dallas Texas. We enjoyed an evening of service by serving the children of God who happen to be in between their blessings. These men were "homeless" and [to me] this equates to "not having their "own" residence to call home." These men rely on the assistance of the UGM to aid them in food, shelter and education. I learned a valuable reminder that these guys could be any of one is exempt from hard times. The one thing that brought me solace was, SOMEONE was there to lend a helping hand.
The UGM is there to lend a "helping" hand and not a hand out. In this lesson on today, the rewards of giving to the poor and needy can be endless.
Christian charity is wonderful to practice and we whom give liberally, will draw other liberal givers to help us when we get stuck. God will always send us some help! A person who is kind to the poor will draw others who are ready to help.
I believe that God will draw divine givers to help our church too!

Without the spirit of giving, division and discord takes over; injury develops then anger follows and laughter ceases; vengeance and dissolution runs ramped then confusion becomes the new faith....we disconnect and are often spiritually destroyed from discontentment.

God is telling us that when we give liberally, we will obtain abundance according to His good measures.... Remember He loves a cheerful giver.... 2 Corinthians 9:7 The Lord is our Shepherd and we shall not be in need....

Be blessed in this season of Christ-mas!

Get To Know God...All Over Again...

My soul, wait in silence for God alone, for my expectation is from him.
Psalm 62:5 (WEB)

The only way to know someone is to spend time with them. The only way to discern the voice of another is to hear their voice often. David understood the principle of connecting with God. He connect with God's love, renewed his trust in Him, and heard directions for his life. Shouldn't you and I do the same?

Will you wait silently on God or will you kick up dust only to find yourselves covered in soot instead of clothed in His promises? Do you expect anything from God?
Aren't you ready to know the One whom created you? Well, wait on Him and you won't miss your opportunity to really fall in love...over and over again!
