Well we are entering the week of Thanksgiving. This year my husband and I have decided to do something for someone else. We are creating food bags for 6 homeless people. We have purchased some travel food items and box drinks. We also bought some Bibles. The plan is to drive around in the community and find someone who fits the need. It will be interesting to see how it works out. I will keep you posted of course.
I don't want to work so hard for all the earthy treasures. I want to work for my heavenly treasures, those are the ones that matter. Not that you go to heaven by works, for it is by God's grace we have been saved. Our church has just finished its emphasis on missions. "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and in Samaria and to all the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NIV) We need to be a witness in our home, church, community & all the ends of the earth. Lets break out of our comfort zones and go into our community and find a need and provide the need. As it is written " How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:15 (NIV) so lets walk with good news through out the community.. Jesus gave his life so we may live. That is reason enough for thanksgiving!
