Wow! I just read this post and I am cut to the core!
I know there are great people out there loving on animals and helping place displaced dogs and cats, into shelters and caring homes, but how about we look at our displaced neighbors!
You know the neighbors Jesus told us to “Love as ourselves”. How are we doing on that one?
30And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” ~Mark 12:30-31
The greatest commandment! Nothing is more important than that. Our neighbor, the homeless?
This is a post/interview with the head of a homeless ministry in NC, and I am embarrassed to say that I for one have a caloused heart toward the homeless.
It is -5 degrees F as I write.
I’m praying right now for the people in our communities who are without shelter in this frigid weather. I am praying for my heart to change, and I think it already has!
There are too many good points to restate in my words, which would be ignorant, because I truly know nothing about the homeless. So here is the link:
Rise Up Church and love our neighbors!
