Hungry, Homeless, needy will you help?

You see them on the street. You try to avoid eye contact, because it will ease their pain you tell that the truth? or is it easier for you to ignore the situation, if you turn your head?

In Isaiah 58:7 ~ it tell us the following ~ Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Here is our instructions. Pretty simple and straightforward of how we are suppose to act, but do we?

I want to suggest a book that all of you that read this blog need to read...Same Kind Of Different As Me such a wonderful true story about two unlikely friends and how God worked through this friendship!

We sometimes think the person makes this choice for themselve and sometimes they do, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't care about them. They are still people that need to know that God loves them too. It is our job to be Jesus to them and sometimes we aren't (including myself) doing a very good job of being nice much less Jesus to them. We make a judgment call and we are way off track the minute we decide to judge...

Remember the word today, if it is only to smile and speak to the person on the street...just like you would to someone that looks like you! I suggest you might Call and work at a shelter and let your eyes be opened to the fact that sometimes they really don't have a choice...I made the call and my eyes were opened again to my own shortcomings rather than someone else's!

Sharing Jesus,

I am guilty. Praying that I will not be so quick to judge others and their situations today.
