    In this time of economic downturn and the time of season of giving gifts, many are hit a little harder than usual by circumstances. Some are feeling guilt and a sense of loss about not being able to provide for their families or themselves. Yet, in contrast there are those who are blessed and can contribute their time and talent.

    As I participated in the feeding of the homeless, I think we had the most fun in the kitchen preparing and serving the food. For some reason the work was fast, the conversation was light, and the people we talked to wanted to know where we were from and why we were helping out. As the chat went around the room, it became apparent to me that many were from different churches and they were volunteering for different reasons. However, there was one thread that ran through all of their reasons. God was moving in these people’s hearts and lives to do something that was greater than themselves. With complete strangers I put my hands together for a common cause to feed those who live on the streets with no hope. The price for a free meal? The Besorah, the Good News, of Yeshua. This same Besorah that changes hearts and lives for all time is also working in my life. Through circumstances and through people, God draws a man unto himself. That same man has a choice to receive the light or reject the light. Yeshua told us that we should let our light shine before men so that they would see our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven. These things are not just for certain times of the year. Therefore, do not hide your light. Let it shine before men all year around wherever you may be in life. Do something today in a small way that will bless those around you.
