Yesterday I spoke with a man who needed assistance for his family, due to a run of unfortunate circumstances. In addition to other help, his family needed food. Our pantry was getting slim so I put out a request for more food and was on the way to the church last night to meet someone who was bringing several boxes of food. As I was driving, I received a call from a man who also asked if we could help with with some food. He was only about 5 minutes from the church. God knew that someone had just pulled up to the church with several boxes of food and had this man call at the exact same time in order to meet his need.
God loves people and wants to help them and meet their needs. This morning, we were able to help the original family that called and someone pulled up to the church at the same time he was there with bags and bags of more food! I was able to pray with and minister to both of these individuals. In both cases, they each said that other churches refused to help them unless they were a member of their church. Jesus said that when we help the least, that we do it unto Him and that when we refuse to help them, it is Jesus that we are rejecting.
