Gave

I’ll borrow a line from Kung-Fu Panda. “There are no accidents.”

I normally don’t quote scripture here as this blog isn’t a deep doctrinal study of the Master but a practical look at Christian applications. But I have to share this.

Within 3 days, a specific passage of scripture was brought to my attention in instances independent of each other.

For I was an  hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. – Matthew 25: 35-40

What it all comes to is how we treat ourselves & each other. That’s it. That’s why we have all the commandments. For some reason we as people have to have thousands of pages of scripture to teach us that, but we still don’t get it. We make it too complicated or we let sin disrupt it.

Giving. Receiving with Gratitude. Passing it on. That is what practical Christianity is. And when we make mistakes, we have someone who can Heal us.
