a word from God

Standard

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.- Hebrews 13:2

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “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.’-Matthew 25:37-40

Today as I was heading home from lunch with my parents, Stephanie, and Chris I saw a man sitting on the side of the road. He held up a cardboard sign that said “DISABLED HOMELESS FOR REAL.” As soon as I saw him, those verses went through my head.

Lord, give us eyes to see what You want us to see. Give us hearts open for Your words and Your children. Bless the man on the side of the road. Bless the people around us who struggle day in and day out. Guide their paths and let them see YOU through Your children. Thank you for the blessings you have given me. Help me to use them to bless others.
