Our 25 “Christmas Songs of the Day” continues…
We thought about featuring this song yesterday, on Giving Tuesday, but I believe we can make an important point by doing it today. The truth is, as followers of Christ, we’re called to be generous EVERY DAY.
I don’t mean hitting the “Donate” button all the time, I’m talking about living our lives on the lookout for ways we can give, love and serve.
Widows. Orphans. Neighbors. Family. Friends. Strangers. Enemies. The “least of these…”
Let’s be INTENTIONAL! Let’s be generous with our time, talent and treasure…
#4 – Dec 4, 2013 – Matthew West | Give This Christmas Away
If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD–and he will repay you!
– Proverbs 19:17 (NLT)
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
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 25:35-40
