Hello beautiful people
The Sunday gone was compassion Sunday in my church. Compassion is a term or trait that we use within the church and it means being concerned and sympathetic about the suffering or misfortune of others.As people of the cross we are encourage to have compassion to those in our world and the world beyond us. In the UK there is a christian organisation called Compassion, this organisation selects children living in poverty and encourage people to sponsor them. The organisation assesses children whom are in need of sponsorship and they work in partnership with churches to get these children to be sponsored by the church. Sponsoring a child means you are giving someone the opportunity to go to school and in essence you are being an answer to a parent or child’s prayer.
I first heard of Compassion on UCB Radio last year and I remember thinking, i need to partner with this organisation. At that time, I wasn’t earning enough to provide for a child. Fast forward to end of April this year, when i attended Colour Conference, during conference I was inspired to pick up my sword and fight for the world, through prayer and also by being pro active. Being pro activesisterhood movementto me meant, adopting a child through compassion, It might not be much that I am doing however I am still doing something.
[Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others],
1 Timothy 6:18
there is so much that the world is going through, so much hurt, so much violence and as a christian I have to a decision that I will no longer stand or sit aside and count down the days till my saviour comes. Instead I am lacing up my boots and picking my armour and choosing to fight for the world. I know i am part of a sisterhood movement where I stand with the daughters of God and we are doing something. We are world changers for we are concerned about our fathers business. I choose to no longer feel powerless, instead I know i am equipped by my father and what ever i have right now, it is enough, for i will use it to honour God and help his people.
And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field to its very corners, neither shall you gather the fallen ears or gleanings of your harvest. And you shall not glean your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather its fallen grapes; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger. I am the Lord your God. You shall not steal, or deal falsely, or lie one to another. [Col. 3:9, 10.]
God has blessed me with so much and with that I am grateful for. With his blessings I will serve him in my world. I encourage you to pro actively look for a need in your community and do your absolute best to meet that need.
There has been times when I didn’t bless someone when I could have and today I was reminded of something very important. When i choose to harden my heart, i would justify my actions by saying “well he would have used that money on drugs or alcohol, therefore its not a wise investment”. Oh how incredibly prejudice of me, it is not my place to assume what the person would have used the money on, God did not call me to judge the person, instead to bless the person. I encourage you today to bless someone, say hi to the shy kid in your class, Adopt a child via Compassion, open the door for someone, cook for your parents. As a christian and a human being lets be the good in the world, there is darkness in the world and we have the privilege to be the light of the world.
