Learning from Kickdefella

Standard
Homeless

There are more homeless people on the street than we would like to believe

reading his post detention post, i was most encouraged by this statement:

Of course I do not anticipate Ramadan Buffet during this holiday as that will be a sin for me because those people whom I fight for, never ever even heard the word buffet, leave aside imagining about it in their life’s

Yes, that statement of his really hurt the ego of the hypocritical bigot in me. Many times I claim to have sympathy and concern for the less fortunate, but I not sure of whether I would give up my comforts in an effort to identify and be ‘as one of them’.

I have to thank kickdefella for reminding me of what Jesus has done for all of mankind. Sacrificing His glory. Taking on the human flesh. Dying on the cross to make possible the forgiveness of sins to all who would believe in Him. What condescension!

For your meditation:

Now if a brother or a sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one from amongst you say to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled; but give not to them the needful things for the body, what is the profit? So also faith, if it have not works, is dead by itself. (James 2:15-17)

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sakes he, being rich, became poor, in order that *ye* by *his* poverty might be enriched.
(II Corinthians 8:9)

One thought on “Learning from Kickdefella

  1. he is not a believer who sleeps with his stomach full whilst his neighbour remains hungry. God gave us to Give and Spend. If God wanted us to hoard He would have hoarded our wealth upstairs with Him. He wouldn’t have wasted our time and energy.

    Thus remember God gives us so that we too can become Givers. Part of Ramadhan Obligation is that each family who has a certain amount of wealth MUST GIVE for each individual in thier family approximately 2 dollarsin charity(sadaqatul fitr) if all the Billion Muslims did that the poor would be 2 billion dollars better off during the ramadhan..
