If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.
Tonight at church we had the pleasure of hearing Shane Claiborne speak. His message is fairly simple: love like Jesus did, take care of the poor and the hungry, find a need and meet a need. We get so wrapped up in our lives and problems that we forget to see the needs of those around us. Shane shared this quote from Mother Theresa, "Calcuttas are everywhere if only we have eyes to see. Find your Calcutta." My challenge for myself and you this week is to find someone that God has placed before you who is in need and fill that need. I would love to hear if and what you do!
