Matthew 10:42

Matthew 10:42

And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.

After Thought

A truly generous person gives without the thought of getting anything in return. The open hands for giving are moved to respond because of an open heart.

Matthew 5:44

Matthew 5:44

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

After Thought

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

Psalm 107:9

Psalm 107:9

For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

After Thought

The size of a challenge should never be measured by what we have to offer. It will never be enough. Furthermore, provision is God's responsibility, not ours. We are merely called to commit what we have - even if it's no more than a sack lunch.

Luke 6:23

When that happens, be happy! Yes, leap for joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, their ancestors treated the ancient prophets that same way.

After Thought

Truth is like the sun. It softens the wax but also hardens the clay.

Psalm 40:17

But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.

After Thought

I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvelous Presence.

Matthew 9:36

Matthew 9:36

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

After Thought

At the Sochi Olympics US slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy naps with one of his adopted puppies and his Olympic silver medal.

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.

~St. Francis of Assisi
