Would you feed Jesus?

This Sunday
May 4
Is Compassion Sunday

Tell a child you love them by sponsoring them
and releasing them from poverty -
In Jesus Name!
"Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me."
Matt. 18:5

"I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink;
I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me;
I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me."
Matt. 25:35-36
Lord, when were you hungry?
by Charlotte
I walked by Jesus yesterday but didn’t see Him there,
Disguised as homeless I rushed by and passed without a care.
He held a sign in front of him but I just turned away,
Indifferent I walked by real fast and looked the other way.
The TV showed a hungry child - some country far from here,
I turned the channel from her pain, one click - she disappeared.
A missionary came to church to share about the lost,
He needed help to fund Christ’s work, asked me to count the cost.
But I went home and did not give, afraid he’d asked too much,
In fear held back with hands closed tight, not loosening my clutch.
I read my Bible late that night and saw some verses there,
They said I’d passed the Savior by when I chose not to care.
Each time I rushed on past the poor and looked the other way,
Unknown to me I went right by my Jesus on that day.
For from His lips I read these words (in sorrow I now see)
“When done unto the least of these, you’ve done it unto Me!”
"Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
Matt. 25:40
