The Word for us today is from Matthew 25: 37-40:

Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give you drink? ‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? ‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.

SEED FAITH. Whenever you and I give, or plant our seeds of faith, we are doing it for Jesus. The person we feed becomes as Jesus to us. The person we visit in prison or in the sickbed becomes as Jesus to us.

How may we know our Lord? We know Him in doing His works and in doing them as much to Him as for Him. We know Him in putting our arms around those who a desperate or alone. He said that when we do this we are putting our arms around Him–Jesus Christ, or blessed Savior.

Although our giving is to take on very real and tangible forms as we reach out to people, as we give through individuals and churches and ministries to meet great needs around the world, the focus of our faith is to be on Jesus and Jesus alone. He is our God–and He is our Source. He is the object of our worship and our love. He alone is worthy of our lives, and He alone can supply all our needs.

We give to others, but let us keep our vision clear. We look past them, with our faith directed to God and offered as a service of love for Him.
