Wednesdays in the Word

"Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it." Hebrews 13:12

Such a beautiful story about loving others in Jesus' name by Edith Schaeffer. I was sooo challenged in reading it that I thought I'd share it today.

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Matt. 25:44-45

We have a friend who passes out zip lock bags to the homeless who are asking for money. Love that idea. Here is what she puts in each bag:
a granola bar
a Slim Jim
box of raisins
and the Gospel of John

Challenged to open my eyes and be a blessing to those around me,
