This morning, I stopped at our local Salvation Army to drop off some hat and glove donations from our mitten tree at the church. This is nothing unusual, as I have been there several times in the past. But, today I felt a bit different because when I dropped off the donations, the lady at the front desk had mentioned that she had promised a gentleman who entered the day before that there would be hat and glove donations for him. She was stepping out in faith and believing that God would provide for that gentleman.
Needless to say, the fine folks in our church have donated not only hats and gloves for children, but also some adult sizes as well! I don't want to complicate the simple message in this life lesson, but to say that God is good and can work through our charity to others. I can't help but think of Hebrews 13:2 where the author speaks of entertaining angels when we serve strangers.
Have you ever thought about what God may be doing in your life right now, in relation to those around you? Including strangers? Think about it.
Grace and Peace,
