"For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in."
... An old shriveled stub reached out to touch my hand. His cloak hid what was left of his countenance, and with his other hand, he pointed his staff into the village where his people live. It was what I saw there that day that pointed out exactly how richly blessed I was. Decending down the path I saw a marred face of a little child. I was completely disslutioned by the events that captured my heart; every prayer had seemed to go unanswered, this dreary nightmare I feared had no end. If only we weren't too scared to touch a disease, much could be done. For a child can never be fed unless we feed him, our prayers only will go so far. We need to go beyond just our offerings, we need to act; for God commands us to minister by the laying on of hands and the annointing of oil.
Our country is richly blessed and fame is easily obtained. Success in the world can lead to fame, with temporary pleasures. Everyone wants a purpose in the world, but no one wants to get their hands dirty, for the calling to serve God is what makes one truly famous, drawing the attention away from ourselves. So let us be Jesus to the world!
