“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
This passage forces us to move from a virtual Christianity to the nitty-gritty day to day reality of serving God.
Christianity is more than giving our money We are not generous so God will approve, but generous so we can share the love of Jesus with those around us Use your free time to God’s glory Use your retirement to God’s glory Jesus never talked about buildings or attendance
God is challenging us with benevolence He put us in this location He is sending people to us We are becoming known as a church that helps people Meeting to determine how to integrate benevolence and outreach
God is challenging us to build Need classrooms Pushing the maximum here in auditorium Must not let building interfere with the other things God is calling us to do
Which Wiseman will we be? One of those who gave a great gift and went home? One like Artaban who spent his life serving God in whatever manner was put in front of him?
