The power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives, and frees prisoners. Ordinary people, whose personal well-being and security are assured, join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet….Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can think themselves into other people’s places….We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better- J. K Rowlings The happiness on the face of people when you show a little act of generosity and kindness is so great. I don’t know how you feel when you do this, but for me it’s a great relief, because all what I think move away. Skip a meal is an initiative established by my senior Pastors in church (His Treasure House Abuja) Pastor Seun and Pastor Godwin Uwubamen.
By His grace this is the 5th edition. Yaaay!!! We thank God. Today’s outreach was challenging but God did it and it came to pass successfully.
As Christians, the Bible is clear throughout its pages that we’re called to give generously. Even in the book of Exodus chapter 35, we see the Israelites all generously giving the materials and time to build the tabernacle. If any of those people decided to withhold the materials they owned or the skills they had, the tabernacle wouldn’t have come together.
Move forward some in the Bible, and in Malachi 3:10-12, giving is the one thing God tells us to test him in.
In the New Testament God himself gave us his only son because he loves us so much, and that Son died on a cross for us. It sets a model that generosity in God’s people should be sacrificial. Here’s a small sampling of what the Bible has to say about giving and generosity.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
