Jesus said in Matthew 22:36-39 in answer to the question, “Which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied , “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Our first commission is to Love God with ALL. How can we possibly love our neighbor as ourselves without the love of God permeating our entire being.
What does it mean to love our neighbor as ourselves? Do we take a shower everyday, eat a good meal, brush our teeth? Do we take care of our family’s needs? Many children go to bed hungry at night, many don’t have clean water to drink, much less to brush their teeth with. To love is to care and that is what Hope for the World is doing in 6 countries right now. The need will always be there, there will always be more to do, will you help us by loving and caring with us?
“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 2 Corinthians 9:7-9
God will generously provide all you need. We often think that we cannot afford to give to the needy because we have so many things to provide for our own children and families. But God promises that if we give, we will have all we need. What a beautiful promise.
The need is everywhere and it is vast, will you help us help the least of these?
