What a blessing many of our Life 101.9 listeners and friends were this month! Through the gifts of generous listeners and donors like you, 2605 nights were sponsored at $15/night to provide a warm night’s sleep at one of our area homeless shelters to someone who has no place to live. That means a total of $39,075 was given for this worthy cause. This was by far our greatest response yet to our Share the Love promotion and we want to thank everyone who participated.
God Bless you friend.
There are many passages in Scripture where God’s children are commanded to give to those who have a need. Clearly giving to the needy is part of what it means to be a Christ follower. One of my favorites is in the twenty fifth chapter of the book of Matthew where we’re reminded that when we give to those who have nothing to offer in return, we’re actually giving to Jesus himself. What a thought!
Take a look at this passage beginning with verse 37:
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
No further commentary needed. That pretty much sums it up, don’t you think?
Thanks again to all of our generous friends who brought a person in from the bitter cold for a night of much needed rest this month. You made Jesus smile and covered him with a nice, warm blanket.
Something to think about.
