Give Up Something + Donate Water = Save LivesI was surprised to hear my pastor on Sunday preach on the same topic that I blogged about last week Tuesday, the same topic that has been on my heart. (You can listen to the sermon here - February 19th) God definitely knows how to make a point!
In case you missed it, last week I blogged about helping the poor. I challenged myself to buy something to donate to the food pantry each time I went shopping - I remembered one time this week and I will continue that challenge for myself!
Turn on the Tap (by Samaritan's Purse) to help give water...and life to someone who needs it!
Here's some encouragement for helping the poor: Proverbs 28:27 says that "He who gives to the poor will lack nothing."
Also, last week I talked about how it can be overwhelming, thinking of all those in need and it can be discouraging that we can only do so much. Well, here's another interested point: When Jesus was on earth, he could have decided to heal everyone in the world, but he didn't.
Jesus healed people ONE at a time. If Jesus started with helping one individual at a time, so can we!
