Sharing Christ

It is more blessed to give than to receive -- Acts 20:35

   One of the gifts of the Spirit is the ministry of helps.  God has a special blessing for those who go out of their way to help others.  It doesn't have to be dramatic or eye-catching.  Nobody need to see you do it.  Sharing Christ by giving used clothing, furniture, or foodstuffs to the poor is a blessing to others.  No big splash.  No headlines.  No picture in the paper.  No recognition.  No appearance on TV.  Just sharing Christ in a humble, non-descript manner honors the Lord. You receive the joy and blessing of giving, and the recipients receive much needed help.

   What can you do to bring joy into another person's life?  Maybe it's bringing a can of food to a food pantry, or visiting someone in a nursing home or hospital.  No matter what you do God will bless you as you bless others.
