The Flour is Almost Gone

This is a sobering and gut-wrenching post to publish. James 1:27 says, "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." Do we truly take this to heart? It is easy to say, "There's so much poverty; what can I possibly do?" But all of us can do something. Start in your home church. Look around your neighborhood. Are there widows, single moms, hurting people? Then Christ commands us to reach out to them and help them. All of us can do something if we are just willing to try. It doesn't have to be a thousand dollars or a new car--just taking over a box of food or bringing a meal or helping with home repair. These are small steps that mean so much. Let's put our money where our mouth is when it comes to living the gospel. The world is watching.

  1. Yes, we should help those we can with material goods and food if needed. More that that, people need to hear the Good News of God's Kingdom. That is was Jesus' primary purpose while on earth. (Luke 4:43) Jesus trained his disciples to go house to house with that same message. (Acts 5:42; Acts 20:20) People need to be reached with the truth so that they can put faith in God and in Jesus Christ in order to be able to receive everlasting life. (John 17:3) But, like the quote from the Editor's Note above was alluding to, we must be "doers of the word." (James 1:22)

  2. I can't agree with you enough! We must remember that sharing the Gospel is most important and help others as the Holy Spirit leads us.
