Are any of my readers in the Dallas area? If so, why not join Lionel (of “A Better Covenant“) and others on December 21st in demonstrating the love of God to the homeless of Dallas? Lionel tells about his plans in a post called “Downtown Dallas Homeless Outreach: The Starfish Mentality“.
If you’re not in the Dallas area, why not do something in your area that demonstrates the love of God? You know… something like giving food to a hungry person, or giving a cup of water to someone who is thirsty, or spending time with a stranger, or providing clothing for someone who needs clothing, or visiting those who are sick or in prison? Why no do for the “least” who can’t do for you in return.
Or, then again, perhaps Jesus was joking when he said that whoever did for the least did for him, and whoever did not do for the least did not do for him. I can’t remember now… what was the outcome of that story in Matthew 25:31-46? Oh well, I’m sure there was some deeper, spiritual meaning that doesn’t require you to actually care for people.
