Take the time to give to those who are waiting to receive
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/03- “Always Remember To Take The Time!” (Hebrews 13:16)
Premise Question: Do we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, honor and fulfill our sacred duty, by always remembering and never neglecting, to take the time to be kind and good toward others, as well as, by sharing the love of Jesus with them and by remembering to give generously to those who are experiencing difficult and challenging times, and are therefore, in desperate straights, without the sufficient help that’s required to meet their needs, as they anxiously await to receive some relief?
And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. (Hebrews 13:16 NLT)
No matter how busy, hectic or trying life may get, we, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should always remember and never neglect, to take the time to show kindness and compassion, with great generosity, towards those who are in need—sharing our life and substance with them freely. For these are the real expressions of giving, with which, Papa God is most pleased! (Hebrews 13:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Do we ever get so caught up in our own lives, in the vicissitudes of life, with the varying ebbs and flow, that we either fail to remember or just outright neglect to honor and fulfill the sacred trust and duty given to us, by The LORD, to be genuinely kind, compassionate and good towards others, to share Jesus with them and to make sure we offer our help and substance during their time of need? Or, do we make excuses, justifications or rationalizations for why we are not fulfilling our clearly delineated sacred trust and duty to others?
Perhaps we’ve been wont to utilize some of these old and customary responses: “I just don’t feel lead!” “It’s not my calling or ministry!” “I don’t have that gift!” “I’m not qualified!” “I don’t have the resources!” “I’m fearful and frightened to do it!” “I’m unaware and don’t know anyone with those needs!” “I don’t live in that area!” “Let someone else do it!” “Isn’t someone else already doing it?” “I wouldn’t want to step on anyone’s toes!” “I don’t have anything to offer!” “Out of sight, out of mind!” So many excuses, justifications and rationalizations, these are just, but a smattering few.
Everyone who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed has been called to fulfill and satisfy this sacred trust and duty, in some way or manner and in some degree!
Something I’ve heard a very wise woman of Papa God say on numerous occasions, who heard some other wise woman of Papa God say is: “Stop making excuses and start making arrangements!” I’m not going to list all the different ways and opportunities that we are given, continually, to do good to and for others and to share Jesus with them and then, to also meet their needs, but, I will say this: Always remember to take the time to give to those who are waiting to receive! And, don’t ever forget or neglect, to be a veritable encouraging, satisfying blessing of refreshing to others, and in so doing, you will be most pleasing to your Papa God! Blessing…
