I found out Monday that there was a family in the Childress area who was in need of some help. They were currently using an ice chest as a refrigerator because their refrigerator had broke. Unable to fix the old one and no money for a new one, they had settled on a simple ice chest for their needs. I can’t even imagine.
The kind person who found out about the whole situation immediately went down to the store and paid for half of a new one. To cover the other half, I decided to simply send a text message to 15 random people from church who I thought might be able to help. I timed it and it took exactly 11 minutes from the time I sent to text to have all the money I needed to cover the other half. Eleven minutes!!! After the 11 minutes … I then spent the rest of the morning telling the others who wanted to give, “Sorry, I already have it. Keep it until something else come up.”
Jesus said, “Whatever you do for the least of these, you did for me…” Matthew 25. Jesus is pretty fond of givers … so am I.
