SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY
BY: CHICO AND DEBBIE JIMENEZ
TO THOSE WHO LABEL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS, YET TURN THEIR BACKS ON THE POOR AND NEEDY… JUST SAYIN…
Proverbs 31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. NO ONE CAN HELP EVERYONE, BUT EVERYONE CAN HELP SOMEONE…
It is a sad world that we live in today. It seems as though CARING FOR THE WELFARE OF OTHERS IS AS OBSOLETE as a rotary dial telephone. This is SAD, but TRUE.
It seems that many people would walk a mile out of their way to avoid helping another human being.
When you finally find someone at an agency that is willing to help you until they find out that the person lives two blocks out of their service area you hear, “Sorry, they live beyond the boundaries of the area in which we provide services for”, or “Sorry, we have to have X number of documents to be able to help someone, you are missing one document, we can’t do it.”
PEOPLE NEED HELP, NOT RED TAPE!!!
Can you imagine JESUS telling people; sorry I can’t help, feed, heal or deliver you from evil today, because you live one block past my service area. JESUS has NO boundaries, neither should organizations designed to help the needy!!!
How do you think you would feel if you had to tell your children:
I am sorry that you are hungry; but we have NO FOOD.
I am sorry that you don’t have a roof over your head; we were late on the rent and we were evicted.
I am sorry that you are being taken away by DCF; our water was turned off because I can’t pay the water bill.
I am sorry that we have no electricity; we couldn’t pay the light bill.
I am sorry that you have to wear last year’s clothes and they don’t fit; I have NO MONEY to buy clothes.
We are speaking of “NEEDS of the POOR” not “WANTS of those who are WORKING THE SYSTEM”!!!
Proverbs 22:2 The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
