"Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it." Proverbs 3:27
If your neighbor came and asked for help with food, would you not give it to them? Why then as Christians do we not readily give our neighbors the Gospel truth? Is it not better than any bread we could give - It IS the Bread of Life!
As we head into our Church's Missions Month, we need to remember that missionaries have sacrificed much (or all) to get God's Word out. Our first missionary works with the homeless. He's collecting items to give to them (tooth brushes, tooth paste, razors, paper, pen, etc) that he can use to help reach them. These are items we can all run down to the local Walmart to pick up when we think we need a new one. Did you ever think that a tooth brush would be a tool to get out the Gospel?? It's creative at the very least! But, this man and his family live in a camper. They have also sacrificed to do the work of the Lord. Let's remember our neighbors, both near and far, who need to know about the love of Christ and what He did for us. And, pray for our missionaries here and abroad.
