Thankfulness in Action

These tots are giving their pets breakfast!

God bless everyone who gives today on what has been dubbed Giving Tuesday!
God bless everyone who gives, no matter what day it is!

Many organizations have committed to doubling the amount of each gift/donation today,
but, as we pray for each need we give toward
 we know in God's hands the increase of the gift
is incomprehensible!!
For more scripture and thoughts on giving see Friday's post! Good, Better, Best

Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Thankfulness is not uttered by the voice of noisy word
But by language of loving kindness, it is seen and heard
Love’s proof unfurls a banner by the speech of how we live
By who we try to honor as we humbly help and give

How holy is the quickened toll that draws souls back to He
Who is still in perfect control with all authority
In spite of what may seem to be a war twixt need and greed
Between excess and poverty, laxness and earnest heed

We who profess to love God are His earthly feet and hands
Kindness is a love-language that no one misunderstands
Love, above and beyond the call of duty’s sorry rod
Delights in the excitement of giving glory to God

Happy Daily Delighting!!

2 Cor.9:6-9
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, 
and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 
7Each one should give what he has decided in his heart to give, 
not out of regret or compulsion. For God loves a cheerful giver.a 
8And God is able to make all grace abound to you, 
so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, 
you will abound in every good work. 9As it is written:
“He has scattered abroad His gifts to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”b
