Please read this urgent message in its entirety....

Time is running out, and there is a real urgency to this message...
because there are people dying today, just as they were yesterday, and will be tomorrow:
  • of hunger
  • of fear
  • of hate
  • of hurt
  • of hopelessness
  • of abandonment
  • of loneliness
  • and from sin
And they are everywhere:
  • your neighbors
  • your students
  • your cashiers
  • your barbers/beauticians
  • your attendants
  • your friends
  • your family
So what are we to do?
Is there anything we can do?
And where do we begin?
  • a smile
  • a note
  • a call
  • a talk
  • a walk
  • a prayer
  • a visit
  • a meal
  • a drive
  • a hug
  • time
  • energy
  • compassion
  • understanding
  • forgiveness
  • sharing
  • consideration
Today I did something that does not come natural to me. I came out of my "comfort zone" and spent my late afternoon with some really neat kids that I've never met before. I can't even tell you all of their names. And yet I helped feed them. I talked with them, and I even played with them.
And to tell you the truth, I actually enjoyed myself while doing it.
That was today.... I don't know if I will step out again tomorrow, but I sure hope so.

So you decide... What can you do today, right now... to reach our dying world?

I have mentioned before that my grandmother committed suicide when I was 19 years old.
And yet, she was dying prior to the incident.
She was lonely, ill, and depressed. And we didn't see it.

Don't wait until it's too late to do what is needed to be done for those around you.
Do it now!
  • bring hope
  • bring food
  • bring shelter
  • bring friendship
  • bring love
  • bring Christ
You will never regret it. In fact, you might even enjoy doing it!

Matthew 25:40 “...Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
