“Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” It is a promise from God, which never fail.
Today many of us enjoy unprecedented abundance and luxury. We can easily forget that a major percentage of the people who live in poverty, seriously lacking necessities. What should we do about this gap between those with plenty and those living in poverty?
We often pray like this “Bless the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted, and those who have cause to mourn.” But just the prayer is not enough. We need action too.
Nevertheless, this is a good time (lent) to be thinking about these things. Sharing blesses both the giver and the receiver, and both feel good when it happens. God is also pleased. Everyone wins!
Love and Care
Mr.D.Joykutty is a local editor for the Shalom Magazine, who run a “Love and Care” service for the poor and needy. He started this charity work by giving “pothichoru”(food package) to the street beggars , since begging is banned in the city, now he concentrates on the orphanages in and around city.
He is running around in his old scooter and doing good service like giving food for the hungry, helping poor patients who need medicines, helping poor children with school fees etc.
All with the help and good will of so many people in Trivandrum. If you give Rs 100, it will feed 5 people!!!.
I know Joykutty for many years. I thought of helping him out by posting this in my website, if it touches your hearts, and spirit moves you to help these poor people, you will be helping God, as we all are created in the image of God.
Because I have been given much, I too must give;
Because of thy great bounty, Lord, each day I live
I shall divide my gifts from thee
With every brother that I see
Who has the need of help from me.
