This Girl Chose Feeding the Homeless Over Prom!
Written by T.M. Gaouette | May 29, 2015
Ladies, I absolutely love acts of kindness. I mean, who doesn’t, right? In a world full of bad news, selfish acts and pain, we all need to hold on to moments of goodness and joy and hope. Why? Because these are reminders that God is still with us—that He hasn’t forsaken us and that He’s still working though people.
So this week’s Caught Being Godly is an awesome clip of a young girl who chose to skip prom and feed the homeless instead.
Check it out and share your thoughts in the comments below.
Ladies, acts of kindness are not about making ourselves feel good. Sure, if seeing joy in the heart of a needy person makes you feel warm and fuzzy, great! But consider it a bonus, not the reason why you do something good for others. You should help those in need because it’s the right thing to do. But more importantly, it’s what God wants you to do.
Scripture is clear. God made us to love others and do good things. Good works don’t save us, but they’re a reflection of our Christianity. Jesus is good and loving, and if He lives within us, then we too should reflect His love through acts of kindness.
Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” … “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. (Matthew 25:37-40, 45-46)
Ladies, what did you think of this cool video?
