But I didn't feel led . . .

Since I been visitin a lotta churches, I hear people talkin 'bout how, after readin our story, they felt "led" to help the homeless, to come alongside the down-and-out. But when it comes to helpin people that ain't got much, God didn't leave no room for feelin led.

Jesus said God gon' separate us based on what we did for folks that is hungry and thirsty, fellas that is prisoners in jail and folks that ain't got no clothes and no place to live.  What you gon' do when you get to heaven and you ain't done none a' that? Stand in front a' God and tell Him, "I didn't feel led"?

You know what He gon' say? He gon' say, "You didn't need to feel led 'cause I had done write it down in the Instruction Book."

p. 154 - "What difference do it make?" by Ron Hall, Denver Moore, and Lynn Vincent

  1. We all complain about the current recession but the truth is I think the Lord is just taking away all our excuses. Before maybe your town didn't have any homeless or less fortunate, but now you're tripping over people who have lost their jobs, lost their homes, and loss their families over the stress of it all. All those times we said, "I'd help but I just don't know anyone" is now answered by "Look down your block and look at your job and see the little girls in your child's class."

    Excellent post, Sister Melani!
