Please take a second and clear you mind. Imagine a life of poverty and hopelessness. You live in a grass hut with a dirt floor, eat maybe a bowl of rice every day and drink dirty water. You are infected with HIV/AIDS and can feel your body slowly dying. Though you are 8 years old you work as a servant, an unpaid servant. You have no hope in life but you keep going. Without medical care you will die very soon. You will die hopeless and alone..
“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.’
So the question is what are we doing? Do we even care about the needs of others outside of our families? Has the Lord’s calling and purpose for your life been choked out by our desires and needs? By the glamorous lights of Hollywood flashing from our television sets? It kills me that I watch my favorite TV show or snack on some chips while another child dies in some unthought-of country. What if that was our child? How would we feel?
These are the questions that I have been challenged with recently. I had to take a step back and put myself in the scenario for the impact to really take place.
Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
So if Jesus lived the life of a homeless man, why do we hold on to our possessions so tightly? It takes 2 dollars a day to feed a starving child. What habit could we cut out in our lives in order to bless another person’s needs?
This very need has birthed the Word Composed and FEED ministries. Not only will our ministry record a praise and worship album with 100% proceeds going to the needs of others, we will also give daily sacrifices to provide for these needs also.
