He who oppresses the poor taunts their maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors Him.. Proverbs 14:31

If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God.. Romans 12:3

I urge you brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own appetite. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people… Romans 16:17-18

The Luxury of Water

DSCN7536Daily Gratitude

The Message

Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.

RSV

And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

stamps

Homespun Kindness

A little package came my way yesterday. In a world that seems to be very indifferent and troubled, my heart was touched by the kind gesture of one whom I have come to know through the world of blogging.

I collected stamps when I was a child. The opening up of my gift conjured up memories of getting stamps in the mail when I was about nine.

There are an assortment of very cool stamps.
