Help the needy and you help God

I am excited about the parables of Jesus. I have noticed multiple lessons in most parables Jesus used. The story of the sheep and the goats, as recorded in Matthew Ch. 25, is no exception. Jesus says there will be a day when all the nations will stand before Him and He will divide them into two groups.

Ministries must touch lives

While visiting someone in Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, I walked into the lobby and saw a woman sitting alone, crying. My first thought was to keep going, but, out of compassion and concern, I introduced myself and asked the woman whether I could be of help.

How to rejoice in suffering

One of the least-popular requirements of Christianity is the act of suffering. In his letter to the church at Philippi, Ch.1:29, the Apostle Paul puts it very plainly, "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in Him but also suffer for His sake."
