Resourceful with Resources

today's reading.
Luke 16:10Matthew 25:31    "One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much...

think about it.
What are the benefits of being faithful (Luke 16:10-13)? What are some ways we can be faithful (Matthew 25:31-46)? Who needs to see or receive your faithfulness today?

the blog.
Jesus gives us a preview of final judgment in Matthew 25:31-46. He's addressing two groups, Christ-followers and non-believers, and talks about feeding, clothing, visiting and ministering to people in need. Jesus' words make it very clear that reaching out to help people is important in God's eyes.

So how do we make sure we're tuned in and accomplishing this? When I hear about someone in need my first thoughts are typically about how my husband and I might help financially. But money isn't necessarily a requirement for helping others. So what are some other resources we can use in helping people? How are you using your resources to feed, clothe, visit, minister to those in need around you? Tami W.
