"let us feed the hungry, house the homeless, stop the killing, and provide medicine for the sick. when we have accomplished that, we can sit around and argue religion." #feedthehungry #loveyourneighbor #priorities #dowhatsright
we are always touched by the number of pastors and missionaries we meet that want to follow Christ's teachings and example...His compassionate, loving and healing encounters with people in need (i.e; everyone). He fed the hungry, physically and spiritually...healed the sick...showed us how to love...forgive...give...live... and He loved ALL. Ironically...when He did speak harshly or words of rebuke it was for the "religious" leaders...the ones that were caught up in religion and distracted from what it really means to BE a Christian.
So while we encourage everyone to read the word...to study theology...to take it all in...please remember the most important commands of all: "Jesus answered, 'love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' this is the greatest and most important commandment. the second most important commandment is like it: 'love your neighbor as you love yourself." matthew 22.37-39
we live in a messed up desperate world. a world that needs more love...healing...food...clothing and shelter. Jesus asked us to make that our priority...to put HIM first...and to love others second...above all else. let's do our part as Christians...as human beings...as neighbors simply caring for each other.
