Even your smallest acts of kindness
will be remembered and rewarded.
Read the following verses. Think
and pray about the verse that applies the most to your life.
Jesus said…“If anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these
little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will
certainly not lose his reward.”
When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord-- and he pays
wonderful interest on your loan!
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, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for
one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and
watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many
rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in
two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth,
this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.
They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put
in everything-- all she had to live on.”
I shovel money out, and God shovels it
but God has a bigger shovel!
Industrialist R.G. LeTourneau
He is no fool who gives what he cannot
to gain what he cannot lose.

Worker On Minimum Wage Donates $2,700
our church was going through a building fund drive to purchase a new
building, a young woman asked if she could talk with me after
church. She told me that she only made minimum wage but she really
wanted to help financially with the building fund project. She said
she had an ugly necklace she would never wear that was given to her
when her wealthy aunt died. She was wondering if we could take the
necklace to help with the building fund drive. I told her that we
couldn’t use the necklace, but she could sell the necklace and give
the proceeds to the building fund. Within a few weeks, she was able
to sell the necklace and she joyfully gave a $2,700 donation to the
building fund drive!
