When we have done this, it often makes me pretty speechless. I am thankful for what I have, but also fairly disgusted with myself also. The things that I have found myself complaining about look childish and trivial. All of the extra stuff I have is a gift that I should hold onto very loosely so that someday, if the opportunity presents itself I can hand it over to someone else who might need it or want it. Imagine what this world would look like if we lived as they did in the first church. The poor would have plenty, the hungry would be satisfied, the neglected and sick would be well cared for and the Good News would be spreading like wildfire!
So, take this challenge: feed someone hungry, talk to someone who is lonely, hug someone who is crying, help someone who is hurting. Don't worry, the Lord will give you plenty of opportunities! Love, it is the Lord's most spectacular miracle!
